what's this above the capacitor

I just replaced the capacitor on one of my ACs (feeling quite achieved!).
But I was puzzled by a small component above the capacitor (circled in green).
I'm guess it's start capacitor?
also if it's start capacitor, is it easy to break down? should I also replace it?
