The microphone capsule is the main part that makes the microphone work. It is essential that this part is functioning properly.

Why should I replace the plate?

This guide was done as part of the capsule replacement—I don’t think there is any reason to solely replace the plate unless there was corrosion on it.

Never open the microphone capsule. Attempting to open the capsule will likely result in permanent damage and make the microphone unusable. Using an adjustable crescent wrench, remove the nut and washer from the face plate by twisting the nut counterclockwise.

Can you replace the yellow tape/cable if broken? (seen in last pic)

Honestly, I’m not sure. If I was in your position, I would assume a similarly sized piece of electrical tape should be fine, but if you’re not sure you may want to contact a repairman.

Thanks for that,

Can i just replace the capsule as seen in the last picture?

Has it to be resoldered? Where do those very fine copper wires go?

It's been a few years since I made the guide and no longer have any microphones nearby to examen, but if I remember correctly, there is no soldering between the capsule and the housing. I believe the housing is soldered to the rest of the body with the silver leads at the bottom left of the picture.
