    • Take note of which way the positive lead marker on the capacitor is facing before removing it. You will need to know for the next step.

    • Desoldering can damage motherboards, so first practice on a board you don't need. Use a 40-50W soldering iron with a chisel tip and 0.080" wide desoldering braid. Also helpful are rosin flux and 60/40 tin/lead solder, in case all the solder doesn't come out. Wiggle desoldered leads to verify they're free, and never pull on any that aren't.

    • Install the new capacitor in the holes left by the old one, then solder it into place.

    • Caution: Ensure that the new capacitor is inserted with the positive lead mark facing the same direction as the old capacitor. If the direction is switched, the new capacitor will fail.
