Question about Metz Mecablitz 60CT4 TTL Flash
The flash stores 200 Joules Energy and uses 350V. You can figure the capacity from those numbers using C = 2*Energy/V^2 However, it is a custom high current photoflash capacitor of odd size, and you will not be able to get it as a spare except from vendor and it would cost much more than a whole used box unit,that you can get off of ebay.

Send the flash to the manufacture or their authorized service rep for proper service. These capacitors are charged to high voltage and are discharged with very high current.
There are serious safety issues with these capacitors. The flash manufactures normaly will not give out service information or supply support for self service. There are serious liability and safety issues involved.
For personal interest, below is a very good article on basic capcitor theory and history. If you have a background in physics and math, this article can be well appreciated.
