I have heard that the Amiga CD32 has 2 capacitors install incorrectly?

Yes that’s right! There are 2 capacitors that was installed incorrectly at manufacture, you see this more in the revision 3 board (not seen any in the rev 4 board) I have also seen some Rev 3 boards where the caps are installed correctly, however its hard to see if this was at manufacture.

You can tell if the capacitors have been installed the wrong way as you will see them bulging, the amount of bulging depends on how much they have been used, the ones below as you can see a bulging and have been installed incorrectly. look at the negative gray strip, if its like the image below they are installed incorrectly.
