just a note: use ESD soldering iron for the cheap ones have voltage leakage on the tip. or heat up iron then remove plug from wall to solder

first make a list of caps needed, size(mFD),voltage, quanity. usally its all the same mFD rating caps

note what side is the negitive . will see that most MB are marked shaded/filled for the neg side, so not to get the polarity wrong

what I do is break off the bad by bending back and forth then desolder the broken cap wire, this saves heating up the cap to remove it Then use a solder sucker to clear out hole
