Auto Helm (WP30) wiring problem

My friend broke the housing of the circuit board to his WP30.
During repair - we broke two of the (hair-like) wires to the "fluxgate compass". We are not sure which wire goes where.
We really don't know which way the connector goes back on since it is not polarized.
He tried to find detailed wiring information from the SIMRAD company but did not succeed.
Can you help us with this problem?

Thanks for the welcome Samuari!
I really like these forums - they have helped me many times. I have owned a smaller sailboat for quite a few years - it hasn't been anywhere that called for an auto-helm. I'm hoping to get the info to help out a friend of mine.
How can I contact Rick?

Can you put some pix on a hosting site and post the links here? The board, the damaged wires, and the connector are a good start.
