Antenna Plug/Cap

I had an aftermarket stereo installed in my '99 SLK230 last year...replacing another aftermarket unit the previous owner installed. Apparently the previous owner did the installation himself, because he made a real mess of it. One thing I discovered was the original antenna was disconnected and he hooked the stereo up to another antenna he laid in the wheel well (why, I have no idea). The problem is, he did something to the connector on the original antenna that has made it so I can't use it even if I tried...short of putting a new connector on it.

What I'd like to do, is take the original antenna out and put a plug/cap in there to seal the opening. Since it's not hooked up to anything, it is very loose, and it even came off once while I was going through a car wash. I've looked around and I haven't been able to find anything like this. Has anyone ever come across such a thing?

On an unrelated note...only 21 days until I can take my SLK out of storage for the winter. I can hardly wait!
