Contact with manufacturer and ask for the replacement.
It is not right when the manufacturer is asking you to solder the electronic components on board of their product to get the problem fixed.
Well I bought my CIC from ebay from a guy who was putting his car back to stock to sell (CCC) and it came with this emulator. Also judging from their website I doubt they will stand behind their product and I don't have a purchase receipt for it (outside of ebay.)

As for whether or not the capacitors work... it has flickered once since then which is a big improvement, but I am going to just keep an eye on it for the time being. If need be I guess I could solder on 2 more capacitors in parallel, but we will see.
