If they were connected to any metal housing they might be an extra earth return — you can check this by checking the resistance between the earth return white and the spare leads. Bought two narva 7 pin connectors to wire up to the trailer and a bike carrier.
The pins usually have a small screw to retain the wire on the back. Well first of all, which round one? It is our intention to keep the popular looms in stock shortly.

Fitting a pre wired socket to an older vehicle is easy, the wires can be fitted straight to the vehicles lights normally using scotch locks but on most newer vehicles 2002 on the electrical systems are more complex and require different types of relays which we stock and can supply.

I used a small 7 pin round for 10 years, and then after replacing the plug multiple times changed to 7 pin flat for the last 12 years, and I have never had a problem with a flat connector. Plus to top it all off, sometimes the small 7 pin round is rotated so that the yellow pin is at the top! There are different colours than I have.

Many major manufactures have been fitting reverse lights and 13 pin plugs on O2 trailers for a few months before this date. These connectors are rated at 40A continuous duty. Found the bike carrier had its wires soldered to clips so decided not to play with it for now and just tested it with an adaptor I had from round to flat. Below is a diagram of a 12N trailer plug with coloured pins as they are wired.
This is ideal for towing a trailer with 7 pin electrics using a towing vehicle with 13 pin electrics. I think part of it is that the flat connector has the female part the part you need to protect most covered and attached to the vehicle, whereas the 7 pin round connector has the female socket as the plug on the trailer.
