What you need is a 4700uF 16V capacitor, I wouldn't bother with "official parts" coz you'll end up paying 10 quid for a bit of black heat shrink with a LRP sticker on it

See if your expensive, proprietary LRP Sphere capacitor is not simply a heat shrunk 49p capacitor from Maplins. The one on mine was.
Same as the expensive proprietary capacitor on my speed passion (Also replaced with a cheapy from ebay).

Should be able to read the spec straight off the original part, is probably the same one in that eBay link up there!
