1st gen - 2nd gen Parts interchangeability

So someone smashed into my 2002 9-5 in a parking lot today. He agreed to buy me a new trunk lid. I've found one pretty local (1.5 hr away) that I sourced the passenger doors from earlier this week. If only I had known I was going to need a trunk too... Thing is, its a 2001. The tailights are different. on the lid. The 2002 seems like it has a fascia piece around the license plate that the 01 doesn't have.

Im wondering If I swap the fascia piece, and my tailights from the 2002 (all that survived), will the trunk lid from a 2001 work on my car?

I can't imagine they are different underneath all the cladding.

Yup.
I believe you'll need to drill 2 holes in the 01 lid for the fascia
