Way to noisy!
Googled around and found iFixit. Ordered the part. Nice website for finding the correct part. Looked at the repair guides.
The repair was uneventful. It was nice having the before pictures to see how that funky fan power connecter went together. I also blew out some dirt that had accumulated.
1. Have some canned air ready to blow out the dirt.
2. Have some good screwdrivers.
3. take your time.
4. take photos along the way, they help
5. I use an egg carton for my screws
6. I marked the old fan with a sharpie, so I would not mix up the two identical fans
7. I also used a bit of double stick adhesive to re-stick the black tape thing.

My Macbookpro was starting to make like a rattling noise. Then one day it started squealing real loud. Turned it off and it went away but came back.
Figured the fan went totally bad. Ordered the part and followed the easy online instructions and it was fixed in about a half an hour. Now it's just as quiet as when it was new.
Take your time and read all the steps at least once before starting. Then when you get into you kind of already know what to do. Then just read and follow the instructions as you go along.

The right side fan on my Mac laptop A1260 was screaming like a pack of 10yr old girls and driving me and the family crazy.
Daunting at first seeing as I needed to remove the whole top half of the laptop and it had connections I was not familiar with, but the how to guides here on ifixit were excellent and made the whole experience a pleasure. In fact, while I had it opened, I went ahead and put in a larger HD with the money I saved from not having to pay repair labor.
It is definitely easier than you think. The Spudger tool is a no brainer, get it and use your screwdriver for something else....like screws.

The buzzing fan in my Macbook beginning to scare small children and animals
The parts picker, and the photo driven installation guides make it trouble free...
Don't cheapout on the spudger -- it should be in your toolkit - these connectors are tiny inside.

Seriously noisy fans.
Easier than expected.
Go Slow, be organized, have a good space available with all tools, parts and snacks within reach.

My Macbook Pro gets a lot of use and the fans were finally reaching a point of strain where they were almost ineffective.
Repair went flawless; the teardown guide was very accurate in stepping me through with disassembly. I didn't run into any issues at all since I have replaced the main board before so I was familiar with the components already.
Be very careful when prying up the keyboard and trackpad panel from the main body so you don't jerk it upward and pull the connector off the main board.

The fan on my macbook pro would occasionally make an extremely loud sound. After taking it apart and oiling the fan a couple of times, I decided that the temp fix was way too temporary.
I followed the instructions on this site about how to replace the fan (actually I followed these instructions the first time, when I oiled it)
Just follow the instructions.
