Saw something odd on my 2000 C280 when I popped off the dust cap. The dust cap was totally devoid of grease. Grease around the bearing was Mercedes green. Car has 125m and I've owned it since 35m.

I replaced mine after spilling a drink on it.

I tinkered with the old one and I suppose the idea is to expose the circuit boards for cleaning but I couldn't get down in there.
