Well spotted! Yes you are right - I was looking at the wiring, not the terminal labelling. So, as per the diagram but ignore the "A" in the "87A" label.

If work is so terrific, why do they have to pay us to do it?

Greetings from across the ditch.
I would also like to thank "jim80h" for his photo of the Hi Beam pick up point to drive a relay.
It is the same on my Kiwi marketed 2017 MQ VRX.
I believe the VRX is similar or the same as the Exceed model.
I'm disappointed with the HID projector headlamp wobble and the high beam cut off so on go a pair of driving lamps.

Hi Guys, that terminal in the fuse box did you use a female blade terminal, and im putting in 2 x 9" spotties and a 22" lightbar on my 2016 gls, can i twist the two wires from both harness into that terminal?

I modified a female blade for that terminal. As the pick up is only a control wire, it is OK to connect both wires together there.

Yes I also cut down a female terminal to suit.
Be careful,do not connect the lamps directly to this wire but use it to drive an after market fuse protected relay which has at least a quenching resistor across the primary circuit.
