Question Wheel bearing kit doesn't fit

I bought this wheel bearing kit from ebay.
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...%3D%26_fvi%3D1

I woke up early this morning to try to install it. After taking everything apart (not fun) I realized the diameter of the smallest wheel bearing that came in the kit is smaller than the one that is originally on the car.

The opening doesn't even fit on to the most out part of the steering knuckle (the threaded stub axle).

I verified that the auction references the correct Mercedes Part #. The Auction also has the same pics as AutohausAz and it is a pretty reputable seller.

Has anyone installed this wheel bearing kit? I'm pretty sure this is the wrong part. Am I missing something?

The first picture clearly shows the different inner diameter. (The Left bearing is the bearing that came with the kit, the Right bearing came off of my car.

The second picture shows the bearing next to the larger stub axle diameter.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
