    He did not say it was leaking or missing parts. He stated it was "bowed". I have seen bulging caps that work fine.

    A bowed cap should be replaced. No checks required.
    Perhaps you should have read the instructions before calling.

    I agree. I am not arguing replacement. I am suggesting that visual inspection is not the proper method for determining viability of a capacitor.
