Unfortunately while trying to clean the potentiometers, i damage one capacitor of the tone control, but I saw a couple that are cracked, so is needed replace all

Tropical fish caps often get a little cracking where the wires come out. Nothing to worry about if that is all it is. If the main body is cracked then replace.
