Default re: basic question: terminal connections at the starter!

2002 new beetle turbo s with 02m 6 speed trans:

I'm almost embarrassed to ask this question but its been forever since I've put my beetle back together! Getting the starter in: trying to figure out the sequence and position of the cables and where/how they connect. I'm exhausted and need some help!

I'm trying to figure out where and how the two terminals connects to (I assume the top top on the starter):

1. terminal large flat with bend
2. terminal with "u" shape; (locking tabs or positioning locking?)
3. (2) nuts
4. positive terminal plastic cover (clips on large flat terminal


I've installed these with different sequences and can't seem to find one that they all work together well with and give clearance for the push on connector to the right of the terminal post. (e.g.: u shaped terminal first oriented down, nut, flat terminal angled down, nut , cover etc.) Any info appreciated; wiped-out from working late all week on this project. Thanks!

Been looking at this thread but still a bit unclear: http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthread.php?2269482

Hey, great straightforward info I need; one other question, negative cable, is it attached to the bolt (on top) that holds the starter on (also has wire bracket) or somewhere else on the trans? I may have put the bolt anywhere; where specifically is it supposed to be? Really appreciate your willingness to help!




Looking from the bottom up.



Looking top down with the battery tray removed.

Here is the positive cable in place (the right angle?) and do you put two (2) nuts on the post to hold the plastic cover in place or just one? Thanks, again!

Here are some pics of what looks like the right location for the negative cable! Confirm?



Bolt on the top of the trans in between the two hoses.

Not at all my fellow new beetle member we are here to help each other out. I would get a digital meter and check continuity from chassis ground to both termninals. A starter is just like a big solenoid it needs a postive and a Negative (ground). which ever one of those posts is grounded to chassis will be your negative and the other will be the positve coming from the battery to make it engage. my two cents on this. good luck to ya.

Looks like I have it figured out; thanks for the help guys! It is much easier to work on; if you remove the battery and battery tray. Here are some pics of the overall layout of the area.
