Question about earlier model door swap for 2000

I have a 2000 C280. For the most part the parts are interchangeable from 94-2000. So I bought a replacement door for mine which is rusted (mine). I am not sure the exact year of the door. Ok. So my door had an air bag in it. This door has no air bag and it doesn't have the cable that plugs into the air bag. That is the first difference. The second difference is that my door has a small plastic box beneath the mirror inside the door. I thought this was the mirror control because it looks like wires are going from it into the mirror. My replacement door does not have this box. It has two wires that go up into the mirror. Ok. I think that this door will fit and I think that the cables will all match up when I install it. But I am concerned because of the Airbag and the black module that the old door has but new one does not. Anybody know anything about this that might be helpful? Should I just swap them?

They are identical. Mirrors. shape. New door has wiring harnesses. Most are the same. But it does not have SRS airbag. Also it does not have little black module beneath mirror. And no srs bag wire. Also no hole to mount bag. The structure of the door is the same minus the things i said. Maybe my car was a higher end option thing. Or the other one was an earlier year that did not have it.
I think I could. I would have to maybe remove all cables from old door, and put in new door. And maybe the module beneath the mirror also. I would prefer to not install the air bag, and hope that the module beneath the mirror is not necessary.
