Directed D2205 missing capacitor value

Hi all
I want the value of capacitor that is missing in the picture attached. Some tec had 47uf 450v bipolar which i feel is not correct. It pulls plenty current with this cap. Once removed amp works normal.

Is that round inductor near the cap OK? The windings look dark.

Have you tried installing something like a 10uF film cap in that location to see if the amp worked OK with it?

Did you check the cap to see if it was shorted?
Ya round inductor looking good. Sorry the 47uf cap was not bipolar. It was normal electrolytic capacitor with positive and negative sides. I will try with 10uf cap but what voltage cap to use?
