New blower regulator, leads too short, so what's the correct part #, need help?

2000, 430CLK Cabriolet.

Have received, twice, regulators ordered over the net. Seem to have diff. part #, but look to be identical parts. Both have the lead 2 inches too short--bend the blade connector from the blower, when installed. Original part has 8" lead, new have 6" lead.

Some questions:

1. What is the correct part# ?
2. Anyone encountered this "short lead" prob. re. this part, before, and
3. ...if yes,then what is the solution ?
4. Can I just transfer the old leads to the new unit, and move on with my life, or will my vehicle blow up ?

Kindly see link:

Thanks, but swapped leads long ago. That's not the prob. Prob. is sealed electronic component. Since it is some sort of a thermo unit, and epoxied, no idea of its internal components (resistors/capacitors/etc.). Because leads are not compatible with my application, indicates possiblility that this is the wrong part altogether. I worry that if unit is not the right one, will it damage its sister components, ie. in line blower, cpu, etc., and then I have bigger probs ? So, will my car blow up ? Been a couple of weeks, and ac/heat system seem to be working fine. Likely OK, and time to move on to leak in fuel/vapor recovery system.
