Default Correct A/C Receiver Drier / Accumulator for 1993 945T?

I ordered a Nissens drier for my 1993 945 turbo. It looked great until right before I went to install it. I discovered that the little nipple on the side, where the low pressure switch screws on, is wrong. It should be a male thread, but the one I got from Rock Auto is a female thread with a quick connect on the outside.

The strange thing is, the photo on the Rock Auto site shows the correct nipple that I need. I ordered and received Nissens part # 95165. Here's the photo of the item from their website:

That shows the fittings that I need, so something must have changed on Nissens' end, or this one got the wrong fitting or wrong sticker put on.

I could just buy the Volvo part, but it pains me to spend $75+ on a part that is less than $25 from Nissens. Rock Auto has other options, but most of them show the small nipple covered with a cap. Not that I can trust the pictures, I guess.

The GPD and the Four Seasons options are the only ones showing the nipple that I need.

Should I order another Nissens to see if a second one is correct, order a GPD or Four Seasons one, order a Volvo one, or do something else?

Has anyone changed a 940 drier recently and can vouch for a correct part?
