Default Motor Capacitors

I need to replace the capacitors on a motor, and went down to Sandys electronics to get them, and had a quick question. The ones that were on the motor were 50v, and the only ones they had that had the same uF ratings were 100v ones. My question is will they work? I don't know much about capacitors, so if somebody could explain it that would be great.

Basically the voltage rating on the capacitors is just a maximum value, so you will be fine with the 100v ones.
