RE: going to upgrade some caps, maybe some advice needed

These are the 6 film caps that go under the PCB correct?

Do you have some already soldered in place? If so, and you want to keep the originals without damage to them there are two ways. With the lead in the grasp of pliers, you can heat the soldering pad and gently pull on the lead until it comes out of the solder joint pad. Or you can cut the leads and do the same with less issues. Then you can go back and clean out the rest of the solder in the hole with either solder Wick or one of those cheap desolder hand sucker pump.
