Default Please help ID Wima cap

Hi, I would like to know the value of a Wima cap which has the following markings:

3300
63-

This cap is small (approximately 6mm L x 4mm W x 10mm H) so it's definitely not 3300uF. I guess the "63-" means 63 VDC? At the back of it is a "5" marking which probably means 5%?

Your help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Oh it's pF, duh. Any idea what series it is (MKS, MKP, FKP)? Why don't these manufacturers indicate the series on their caps?

Thanks a lot!

It has a red case. I'm not sure about the bottom because I can't see it -- the cap is still soldered on the board. Most likely it is a yellow bottom.
