You really can't use a Iron on the SMD's. (You can but It needs to have thermal controls). Also capacitors don't blow without a reason. There is a short somewhere else. Probably corrosion bridging a trace. To remove You just need to remove the soldier with wire brade. Re tin the cap you remove and put in place. Heat one side pushing the part down heat the other side. Should be pretty easy.
