Airbag Compatibility

Bought a replacement airbag on Ebay... went to put it in and everything was fine until I tried connecting the wires. The green one will fit, the black one will not. The back of the airbag unit looks a bit different, everything else is identical. See photo; original airbag is on top:

I did not receive the wire that connects between the airbag itself and the connector in the wheel (presumably beside the connector for steering wheel controls, etc). Could it be that I just need this wire? Or do I completely have the wrong airbag? Everything except for the back plate make it appear identical to mine.

Any help here? Car is going to body shop soon and I want them to reset my airbag light or I will miss the opportunity...
