Ignition switch connections..?

I have to reconnect two wires to a piece called ignition warning switch (color black: A 202 545 0314) which is to the left of the ignition lock... The wires are yellowish with a red line (most probably +) and brownish with a blue line (most probably earth -)...
They are connectable both ways... Which way is the correct one..? Brownish with a blue line facing me (3rd photo) or yellowish with a red line (4th photo)..?

Usually, if the connector is not polarised (or keyed), it does not matter which way round it goes - you feeling lucky?

To the benefit of all... Here is the message that I received from a different forum:
"I just went out to the shop and had a look at mine, and it is like the number four picture. Red and yellow wire toward the driver"...
My thanks to "MtPockets"...
