It is definitely easier to take the scope apart, clip the can lugs
from above and remove the can without destroying the circuit board.

That said, I have used very long leads on those adapter boards and
threaded them into place without taking the entire scope apart. You
do need some reasonable skill to desolder the caps without causing the
traces to lift (and it is a double sided board). That's a bit touchy.

If you have to do one, you might as well do them all, but if it ain't
broke, don't fix it :-)

Thanks for that Paul. Having read up quite a bit about cap replacement that was the method I had decided to use if I was going to proceed as it seemed to be about the neatest solution I'd seen. (This one caught my eye
I'll certainly check the ripple on those rails first as re-capping looks rather non-trivial to me!
