Most alternators have only two wires, the big screw post goes to 12+ , the spade terminal goes to the warning light. Is yours different?
If so give us more info on it or the problems you are having...

I can tell you from experience if the warning light isn't hooked up and working right it won't charge.

DITTO! I replaced my alternator last fall FOR NO REASON! The idiot light was burned out, and the charging system won't work without it. Your speedometer illumination lights are the same bulb.

If you still need a pic, lemme know. It's VERY straightforward. What problem are you having anyway?

B+ is battery positive side. D+ is the field wire the small wire. Did you look at the conversion wiring diagram link? It is right out of the VW factory manual.

Some people are putting LED's on the charging circuit for the warning light. If this is the case, in "most" situations it's not going to work, and won't let the charging system work either! LED's only work on a specific voltage for which they're rated and you have to get the polarity correct as well. Just a heads up to anyone thinking about adding niffty LED's to their dash instruments.
