You HAVE to replace R4303 0R with a 2k2 !! (check R from mic housing MIC4301:2
to GND! Has to be 2k2, will read 0R usually)
Otherwise this cap fix CAN NOT work. Refer to schematics, please.

Probably won't change that much - interesting to hear of your results

You also could have used the empty pad more near to the left side (R4304)
Wire should be kept as short as possible (to reduce "antenna")
