Depending on te size of the capacitor (Could you post a picture?), it may be impossible, unless you have amazing soldering skills. I've successfuly done component-level repair on game consoles and computer hardware, but never on moble devices. The smallest diodes I've ever been able to successfully replace were around 1mm in size, and I've been doing this stuff for years. You would also need a soldering iron with a very fine tip.
