I need to remove the wires from this board

I see a small "box" next to one of the wires. Will that be removed when desoldering the wire?

On the side with the bulbs there is a hole with a negative sign. Is that the black/negative wire?

I will take the two wires from this board and solder them to the above board.

I have a solder and desoldering wick, I have never used them before.

Thanks

First, take your pictures and paste them HERE. Many here won't bother to go to another site just to look at your pictures. Once you do this, you might get some help. Remember, it is YOU who needs help - not us.

In my opinion, you'll be able to remove the wire without also removing the component, which appears to be a surface mount capacitor. I'd place a gentle pull on it and touch it with a hot iron.

Thanks, yeah I will try to find a board from a non-working piece of electronics and practice on that and then carefully desolder the real one. I see some videos on Youtube, so that should help too.
