    I'm trying to fix a car amplifier, and came across this weird thing, which I assume is a capacitor. The closest thing I've found to it using Google image searches is a multilayer ceramic capacitor. It was attached to the board over a resistor, so they were connected in parallel, but it's not on the schematic.

    Am I right in thinking it's a capacitor, and that it has a value of 0.01μf?

    If the pictures upload correctly, the first shows the removed component, and the second shows its original location over R149.

    Think you are correct, it is a ceramic/Mica capacitor in 0.01

    It is a MIW! (make it work) component added after PCB fab
