Regarding caps -> you can’t do much wrong, as long as you buy some:

  • with the same capacitance
  • with the same (or higher) voltage rating
  • with the same (or lower) tolerance
  • with the same case code (= size)

As for resistors -> everything should be okay, as long as you buy some:

  • with the same resistance
  • with the same (or higher) power and voltage ratings
  • with the same (or lower) tolerance and temperature coefficient
  • with the same case code (= size)

Maximum and minimum operating temperatures should keep in mind too… but since you wont nearly reach those limits in this case, they are not THAT important.
