This MacBook Pro is a workhorse and on for 20 hrs a day powering an external monitor. The fans finally started sounding like meat grinders.
Repair was easy! I used a tool kit I ordered with the parts because I didn't have a #6 torx bit.
Definitely make sure you have the right tools.

I thought for a long time that it was the hard drive that was the problem. A technician suggested it might be the fans making the noise. It sounded more and more like the right thing. I ordered both fans just to be sure to eliminate the problem either it was the left or the right fan.
Followed the webinstructions and the sound went away
Easy fix to potentially critical problem

Not supportable noise
The risk was to order the bad one (left or right ) that was the question! So I decide to open it to have a look, a first time.
One seems to be too wide...Decide to change right fan....It was the good one.When reopen after receiving the command it takes only few minutes.No more noise !
Take the time to identify clearly which one fan to be changed by open the mac before ordering

The fan was very noisy and i was afraid due to friction, the fan produce dust and spoil my macbook pro by overheating.
I have taken the occasion to upgrade the memory.
The guides are wonderful and complete. After acclimatisation of the parts (it was a cold day when it has been delivered) I have made the replacement and upgrade in less then a half hour.
The delivery was really fast, less then 3 days to get it at my home in Belgium, and with Fedex, easy to follow the shipping.
Don't be afraid, the guides are straight forward.

My MBP had a noisy right fan. Probably "imbalanced" or something.
Super smooth. The fan was easy to replace.
Pull the fan connector from the logic board "upwards", not forward. There's not supposed to be any real resistance. Don't pull too hard if it doesn't give in. I messed up my fan connector on my Mac Mini by doing that - pulling to hard in the wrong direction. The fan connector on the logic board is really the only thing you can mess up here.

Sunddenly one of my laptop's fan became noisy. It is summer and hot inside the houses here in France, hence I immediatly decided to change both of them by security without trying to find wich one started to have a break down. Ordered on Thursday, received next Monday => great experience !!
I performed changes in less than 10 minutes, because I have the right tools and already undusted fans in past !
Of course, before touching the mainboard, I have disconnected the battery to avoid any electric shock.
A soft brush can be very usefull for the first clean-up inside. Of course, perform that very very carefully without pressure : this has to be like a caress ! Then an air-spray is also very usefull, and do not forget to put screws far from the laptop when spraying (lol) ...
I guess that this is a safety method compared to the use of a vacuum, that can dramatically damage components, even more in such laptop !
