It doesn't.  Use Mercedes P/N Rubber cap: 1234101081 (thanks to Igor).

Not really.  Buy the $30 P/n supplied above.  Drill and punch the bracket
off the old center bearing and the new one and weld the old one onto the
Mercedes part.  Voila.  And just in case anybody thinks this can't be done,
Frank Bauer and I are both driving on this repair.  Works great.  Also, I
think Mike may do it for less than Blau, you supply old center bearing.
