Uli,
Just search the achives here...this has been covered many times and you can do maintenance on those caps.
Unless they are broken, you should be able to re-furb them. I ave done many with good results.

Hello to the list,

I'm in the process of restoring my first KWM-2A. While readjusting the
preselector I noticed that some of the ceramic trimmer capacitors are
pressure sensitive and some of them do not react at all. Is there a
source for some new subtitutes?
