There is no way. When these snap-in type caps are installed, they are installed. You can't move them. What you can do is carefully file into the sides of the MEC100 to make it fit. But this is at your own risk of course, once you expose the parts on the inside you have potentially damaged the MEC100 and/or you have parts with a high DC voltage exposed, you don't want that. Edit: I did not even check the pitch, but if it's like R2 as bazelio mention it would be perfect to drop it in with no wires soldered. The shorter the connections at this point of the circuit, the better because of the ripple that can make long connections act like noise transmitters. So maybe you can take one for the team and file into that MEC100 and see if it works..!? I have not yet tried to take the MEC100 out again to check it's potential influence on sound. So yes: Please let us know what you hear If it does nothing for the sound, at least we know that we have brought the ripple from the power supply down as much as possible.
