Amiga 1200 faulty CIA fix

Got this A1200 that was working fine except for some random crashes. Upon performing the Amiga Test Kit, it showed a fault in a CIA timer. The 1200 has smd components, that means you need a hot air station to remove some chips. The following pictures shows the removing process of U7. Then I added a PLCC socket for the new CIA ic. Machine fixed.
