I think you are right.  I'm missing a relay and have no idea what part
number or anything else about it :-(
The black wire is much thinner than the other two, so it would be likely
providing a signal.  The switches do have numbered settings.  It makes sense
that the motors would have pre-set travel distances, only function when the
headlights were on, and other functions controlled by a relay.

 The motors might work if I just hooked up the ground and yellow power
wires, but then I'd have to be careful, keep curious fingers away from the
switch, etc ... I think I'll give that a try before installing everything.

 Does anybody out there know what the relay part number would be?  Maybe I
can figure it out from the
FA.  Is anybody in Europe listening?  Phil Payne, where are you when I need

Thanks everyone,
Dave C.
