The new capacitor can be installed and soldered in now. As you do this you need to pay attention to polarity of the cap. The negative lead is marked on the new capacitor with a gray strip and the '-' symbol in that strip, as seen in the first photo. The negative spot on the circuit board is shown by the black half of the circle on the circuit board. There is also a '+' sign next to the other hole as well. Be sure the negative lead of the capacitor goes into the negative hole of the board, and then solder down the new cap.
