TCU Hookup question

I've been through all the bluetooth threads several times, and don't recall reading this. I purchased a used TCU, that according to the SIB should work for my car. I ordered the rest of the parts from Tischer, and just started to go at hooking it up this afternoon. When I looked at the TCU, I noticed that the fibre optics had colour coded connectors, which seemed to correlate to the TCU connections. When I actually go to install them though, I realize that the shortest cable needs to go to the farthest port on the TCU, and in fact is not long enough without putting some strain on it. Am I missing the obvious here??

I don't think those are MOST, those are Fakra antenna connectors. MOSt use a different connection.

Can't you turn it upside down?
