[RndTbl] OT: Soldering help

Sorry for the off-topic post, but I hope someone on this list can help me.

I have a PCIe card which has a capacitor on it which I'd like to remove and
re-install, but on the other side of the board -- it's in the way of
something, and if the cap isn't moved, I can't use the board. It's not
surface-mount, and the leads go right through the board so it should be
possible. I tried unsoldering it myself, but my soldering iron wasn't hot
enough... or something. I'm not experienced with soldering. I may have even
damaged the cap, for all I know, so I may have to get a new one. It's
cylindrical and appears to be 330pF, 16V. I have pictures, but I'm not sure
if the Roundtable list allows attachments (I expect not). I can email them
directly to any interested party.

If any of you can help, please let me know!
