sun visor swap?

both of the mirror / light insert doors are missing on my visors. This means the lights can not be turned on due to the door flipping up being the actuator. Anyway, I found some on ebvay for 150 dollars. I also found the w126 inserts and also w126 visors complete on ebay.

will these fit my car? they look slightly different. I am not too concerned with being an exact match, as long as they will line up with the clips.

In one case, just the mirror assembly is for sale... but for 126. I am wondering if I can just switch that out with the one in my visor. Here it is :

parts would be 80 each. then installation would be extra depending how fast they work.

my issue is that both the lids are broken off on my inserts. As you know, these are the light switch actuators also. My visors are fine, but the inserts are broken. I bought an insert from a different model that appears to be the same on ebay. I will let you guys know if it is a clean swap.
