[title] Remove the broken diode
[* black] Desolder the broken diode. Apply heat to one lead while lifting the diode with a plier. Once the solder melts the part should lift up. Repeat on the other lead.
[* icon_note] If the solder does not seem to melt, and the temperature is already plenty high, try using a bigger tip. Sometimes that helps to transfer more heat to the lead, melting the solder faster.
