The Fan`s where making a crackeling noise and the machine got hot and ran slow.
Repair was straight foreward and there was no problems, thanks to the guides.
I decided to change both fans since I did not know witch one was bad or if it was both.
Read the Whole guide before you start and make sure you have al the Tools. Also use an antistatic mat!

Machine made terrible sounds that seemed to be the fans (Optical and Hard Drive seemed to be working fine).
Very easy. I was a little nervous about the connectors but with the correct soft tool they came apart with no problem.
Replacing both fans and major vacuuming took about 30 minutes.
Get the right tools, take your time and don't force anything. The unibody MacBook Pros are very easy to work on.

Mi MacBook Pro tenía tres problemas:
1-La batería estaba en su último ciclo de vida, estando a un 50% de capacidad máxima.
2- Los ventiladores no funcionaban correctamente, haciendo mucho ruido. Estando uno de ellos, el derecho, prácticamente estropeado.
3- La unidad de CD/DVD no funcionaba desde hacía tiempo.
A parte de eso, el disco duro se me quedaba algo lento para los programas actuales y decidí instalar un par de SSD de 256 GB aprovechando que no funcionaba la unidad de DVD.
La mayoría de pasos fueron muy fáciles en general:
- Cambio de ventiladores super fácil: sacar la tapa, desconectar el conector de los ventiladores a la placa y quitar tres tornillos. Limpiar y montar los nuevos.
- La batería fue más de lo mismo. Sin complicaciones.
- La parte del Dual Drive fue donde más se me complicó la faena ya que uno de los tornillos se pasó de vueltas y tuve serios problemas para sacarlo. Una vez fuera fue tan solo conectar y atornillar.
Una vez todo estaba en su sitio conecté la batería, cerré la tapa y arranqué con una tarjeta SD arrancando Mavericks. Utilidad de disco, RAID 0 para los nuevos SSD y a volar!
Sobretodo tened cuidado con los tornillos Phillips de dentro, los negros. Son de muy baja calidad y si están demasiado apretados es difícil sacarlos. Aseguraos de tener el destornillador adecuado e id con mucho cuidado con ellos.

The fans were making a lot of noise and the computer was overheating.
The repair went very well, I replaced the two fans and I added another harddrive to the device. The repair kit which also came with the order gave me all the tools I needed. No damage was done and now my machine is running with two new very quiet fans and a very fast ssd which my operating system now sits on.
Definitely buy the repair kit from this site with your order, it's very handy and will give you the tools you need to get the job done quickly and safely.
Also ssd is the best thing that ever happened to my mac, my machine now has at least a 5 second startup compared to a 1 minute startup it had with the factory 500 gb hdd

Right fan blew a bearing, decided to replace left at same time.
Was an easy fix.
Make sure you order the tools you need at the time you order your parts. Don't be trying to make do with something from you tool-box that kind of fits. The tools are cheap, well made, and then you have them for future repairs.

After 4+ years, a fan in my MacBook Pro (Late 2008) began to make a loud grinding noise. While it sounded like it was coming from the right fan, I used the iStat to verify where the app indicated that the right fan was operating at a lot slower rpm than the left fan (which was running at a high rpm to compensate).
Followed the guide(s) for fan replacement provided by ifixit and the repair went smoothly. Due to the machine's age and the fact that I primarily have it on 24/7, I went ahead and replaced both fans while I had it open. Overall, it took about 15 mins to complete the repair, which included blowing out the internal dust and cleaning the inside of the back case panel.
If you don't have one, order the Spudger tool - it made disconnecting the electrical contact plug very easy and protected the motherboard from damage.

My late model 2008 Macbook Pro has been a gem, but all of a sudden the right fan started to give out, the left would be clocked at over 6000rpm while the right was dredging at barely 2000. It was time, after 4 years, to swap the components out.
It's an easy swap, took 10 minutes only because the screws are so dang small. Fans were in perfect condition, and my computer hasn't been this silent in years. I'd almost forgot what a new MBP is supposed to sound like - nothing! Silence again, my ears rejoice.
If you're going to replace one, replace both, it's a cheap swap and you'll save yourself in future woes. If one died, the other is right behind it. Remember to discharge any static electric build up with the metal plate apple installed.
