The three red seem odd, normally there would only be two. As a result I may be wrong in your case. But normally you would connect yellow to yellow and blue to blue. When removing any electrical item either you most leave something like a blanking plate to show where it was or remove completely. There are "Permitted Zones" for wiring once you remove the ID to show where it ran it is no longer a permitted zone.
