I am sorry no one could help you earlier. If you still need help, I will be glad to assist you.

What is the full machine serial number of this machine?

What are the colors of the wires in question?

Can you see any number markings on the wires?

What size are theses wires? (wire gage size, if possible)

Where do you think they should go? Is a part bracket missing that should be in that compartment?

What components are in the compartment? (air filter, fuel filter, etc.) {If these are small wires, see if they could go to the air filter restriction switch located behind the air filter housing on the suction hose to the turbo.}
