OK. Thanks, but if I can't get it off I won't be able to order anything, I will have to call a repairman.  So do I simply pull the capacitor off? ???  How do I discharge it first?  I am allergic to pain.  What is the trick to getting this wire out?

That capacitor will not hurt you.
If you have needle nose pliers,grip the wire close to the terminal end and pull hard.

Get mean with it and yank out that wire. No need for a service man. You got this. Easy peasy.
No need to even try and unplug the old cap as it is shot. You can clearly see it is bad.

Sometimes these parts get so hot when they fail, they melt together.  They can also melt the contacts on the compressor.  I just replaced a compressor on a fridge because that part burned the contacts all the way to the body.

The fridge was only four years old, and the Whirlpool said all they had to pay for was $350 labor.  All the parts were free, and they still bought a new $2000 fridge!  Sheesh!  I would have fixed it for $800 if I owned it.  Who has money to spend $1500 - $2000 on a fridge every time one breaks down?

Oh well, it's mine now.  They called wanting someone to haul it off, so I picked it up and added it to my collection.
