Initial Build

This is a pretty basic question but cant seem to find the answer. Ive got my new JD robot and looked at the instructions to build it and the first instruction says:

Connect Left Shoulder to servo port D3
Connect Right Shoulder to servo port D2

how do i know which wire coming out of the chest is left shoulder and right shoulder? there doesn't seem to be any markings on them?

in the next step it then says:

Connect Horizontal to servo port D0
Connect Vertical to servo port D1

again how do i know which is the horizontal and which is the vertical?

Any help much appreciated!
