AV40 left speaker is quiet.

AV40 quiet left speaker here (fixing my second set of AV40s, loving your choice of caps supplier, M-audio):
Replacing 22uf caps near the edge did not fix the problem although 2 of 3 are tested bad. But inspecting C13 capacitor, which is deeper, I found it is not only failed but also has one contact plate lifted from the board. So I soldered a jump wire to the nearest intact contact plate and replaced C13 cap. AV40 works, for now...
