SMD caps soldering help

hello guys ,

i need some help and tips on how to solder the following SMD Caps as the location is very tight.

You’ve probably already done this by now but for anyone else…

Don’t use hot air in this area. Use some decent lead solder… not the claimed “leaded” crap you get off ebay that’s actually unleaded, get some real solder from mouser or other, i use chipquick 63/37

Flux it up and tin the pads, take multiple passes to remove as much of the original unleaded solder off, i use a chisel tip and cover both pads with excess solder and flux then slide the replacment cap in place (touching both endcaps at the same time) repeat for the other cap then finally clean up the excess solder one endcap at a time. job done :smiley:
