Default murata caps in mesa boogie footswitch

hi, I need help finding the value of this murata capacitor. it is labeled XL3 102Z and on the other side K5U 9737 (may be 973Z ). I have found the data sheets for some of their other caps, but not this one. I am miniturizing a Mesa Boogie Bigfoot A footswitch for my friend, and there are two of these guys on there. Of course I can't find a schematic to this pedal. Could I check the capacitance using a meter without removing the cap from the board? The other caps from murata that are on the board are 10000pf, all little tiny yellow ones.
Does anyone have a clue? I think this is a discontinued cap. I emailed murata and they have no idea. Thanks for your help!

No. You have to pull at least one lead from the circuit.

Do daemons dream of electric sleep()?

1000pF, i'd guess (from the 102)
