Hey, all. I replaced a faulty surface mount capacitor in a Bose Wave radio with a bent-over thru-hole. Unfortunately based on where it was I was afraid of shorting other items on the board if it contacted them once reassembled. So I put shrink wrap tubing around the barrel of the new capacitor. Is that likely to be a problem?
Replaced the one at the arrow:
So. Bad idea?
EDIT: this capacitor seems to only serve the CD player and not the amplifier circuitry. Just to be clear. It’s pretty low voltage.
New cap is a Nichicon CAP ALUM 22UF 20% 16V RADIAL
Thanks for your thoughts.
