The 2004 Ford TIS disc shows lots of wiring diagrams that would probably include your vehicle. Unfortunately I cannot see a sensible way to copy and send these. I've sent you a pm

Kind regards

Should be something like this if these are the colours you have

Orange/yellow - Left indicator (yellow from towbar socket or orange if you are fitting the buzzer)
Orange/Blue - Right indicator (green or grey from socket or buzzer)
Orange - N/S Side light (black from socket)
Orange/Black - O/S Side light (brown from socket)
Orange - Stop lamps (red fro.........)
Green/Black - Reverse lamps (yellow only if you are fitting 2 sockets)
Green/Yellow - Rear Fog lamps (blue from socket)

to determine the stop & side as they are both orange, The side is the orange wire next to the orange/yellow for the indicator.
