It should go in parallel according to diagram in your photo. So one leg should go to one wire and other to other wire.
Now you work out how you manage it, as splicing OEM wiring is not ideal mate.

You can try to take out the connector wires and see if you can add additional wires to it and other end of those additional wires can go to these resistors.

Or if you have anybody with autologic in your area, ask him to uncheck indicator testing on your car and that should do.

Thanks for the reply,

Yeh I agree about the wiring so I'm not gonna splice anything! i think i might try and add additional wires ... I'm considering getting these led tail lights:



then using the led for indicators so may just wait and see what the wiring situation is when they arrive.
