    The blue & yellow wires are what engerizes the coil in the contactor.
    The manufacturer of the old contactor decided to put both dual lead coil terminals on one side.
    The replacement contactor has a dual lead on one side for the blue wire and a dual lead on the other side for the yellow wire.

    Looks like blue on one side and yellow on the other. The posts appear to be tandem together on each side. With AC current, a contactor coil has no hot or neutral, so there's no polarity to worry about
