With the rear side of the device (the side with Ethernet connectors) facing you, carefully lift up the left side of the metal plate while keeping the right side of the plate near the top portion of the unit.

The fan is attached to the metal plate, and connected to the logic board next to the power connector. To prevent damage, do not lift the plate straight up or use force.

Disconnect the fan from the logic board. A spudger or tweezers may make it easier to do this.
