Use a spudger, or other thin object, to remove the capacitor from the housing. (Image 2)

To remove the red and yellow wires connected to the capacitor, use a soldering iron to heat up the solder and a vacuum to suck up the solder. Any other methods you know of will also work.

Take the capacitor to you local electronics store or order another capacitor online by reading the capacity off of the side of the capacitor. It should be in microFarads (µF).

Once you have a new capacitor, solder on the red and yellow wires to the same place as the old capacitor.
