RE: Cornell Dubilier Caps

Any bulging electrolytic, you need to replace it.

Do not power up the unit with that cap visible to you, and wear eye protection when examining the amp. A failing electrolytic can explode violently at any time, spewing electrolite everywhere. You don't want to have to clean that up and you don't want bits of capacitor hitting you in the eye.
