Is there a way to de-rust a tuning capacitor without removing it from the chassis? The layout of my Hallicrafters S40 would make removing it a huge deal.

Can you fashion a tub of tinfoil around it sealing gaps with silicone and fill it with a liquid rust remover sold in the auto chemicals section of an auto parts store? After it did its job remove the fluid with a gravy baster. Kind of guessing here but that is what I would try.
