    What are these plugs/wires for Z20LET

    After fitting a z20let in to my mk4 ive noticed that i have a few spare plugs. can somebody help me to identify them please.
    the first two plugs are in the passenger foot well:
    The big blue plug and the smaller black plug



    and then there's these few plugs near the abs pump:
    1

    2

    3

    There is no ABS fitted to my car so im sure some of the plugs will be for ABS/TC.
    Thanks

    the little black one in the first pic i think is for the optional handsfree telephone kit iirc - cant recall what the blue one is tho

    the 2 black/green plugs in pic 1 are for coolant tank level sensor & bonnet anti-theft switch **again i think** lol

    black/pink oblong one is defo for the ABS pump and the little one next to it im guessing is also related to that

    Im pretty sure i plugged the coolant tank level plug in. i thought they both might be for bonnet anti-theft switch.
    the telephone plug has 2 cut wires so im glad thats not for anything important.
    its the blue plug in the foot well that worries me. im thinking there could be some sort of unit missing.
    could the small plug in pic 2 be for the TC?
    Thanks for the help.

    isnt the blue plug to do with airbags as some of the wires are covered in an orange sleeve? passenger airbag maybe?

    Thats what i thought it might be. my airbag light came on after starting the car too.
    the car already had a passenger airbag but no plug like that on my old loom.

    After searching for hours i think the big blue plug in the foot well is for the YAW sensor and the plug in pic 2 is for ESP.
    Im hoping that once i fit the ABS unit with ESP that i dont get a car with spanner light because i dont have a YAW sensor.
    There is also another 2 wires by the steering column that i think has something to do with ESP.

    very sorry to drag up an old thread but did you suss this out?

    what i need to know is, where is the yaw sensor and what colour plug/wires goes into it? (i think its under passenger seat) (any of the ones you mentioned?)

    and also which wires/plugs around the column are related to the ESP?(for steering angle i believe)

    cheers
