My Problem

my 17" late 2006 MacBook Pro was making an incredibly loud and angry sound. some basic diagnosis with compressed air revealed the problem to orginiate with the right fan. iFixit had the best part at the best price, and I love the screwdriver kit

My Fix

flawlessly! easy peasy, took about 10 minutes.

My Advice

pro tip: if you haven't taken your MBP apart before I recommend having a dish with compartments to keep the different size screws separate, and safe. I used a box of chocolates left over from valentine's day. also, buy a can of compressed air, because you may as well spray your MBP out good while you have it open.

My Problem

The right fan in the laptop had been making a soft clicking noise on and off for some time. Recently it grew very loud so that you did not want to be in the same room with the machine.

My Fix

The part from IFIXIT arrived very quickly and following the step by step guide made replacing the fan very easy. I did simplify things a bit by not disconnecting the trackpad and keyboard ribbon cable or the display data cable. In the first case I just stood the keyboard assembly up against the screen while replacing the fan. I was able to slip the old fan out and the new fan in under the display cable.

My Advice

The only thing the guide did not address was the black tape along the top edge of the fan. I was able to peel this back to remove the fan and was surprised to see copper foil under the tape. After peeling it back the tape was no longer sticky and therefore does not adhere to the new fan. This does not seem to be a problem since everything is working fine but it would be helpful if the guide gave addressed this issue.

My Problem

High temperatures, fan noise, fan rotation speed less than half wha it should have been

My Fix

The repair guide was outstanding. Step by step, with associated pictures. Best guide of this type I've seen on the web or anywhere else).

My Advice

The only problem I encountered was with shipping. My part appeared to sit in San Luis Obispo for over a week. I expected a certain amount of delay due to holidays, but this took much longer to get than anticipated. Watching the news I saw the reason for the delay - East - East coast truckers were having a tough time with snow and ice. Customer Service was always quick to respond to my concerns and was ready to airmail part if need be.

My Problem

Right fan got very noisy

My Fix

It went perfect, easy with Ifixit guidance, changed left fan in same operation + cleaned both cooling grills, both fans been running since 2007, a lot of hours and Rpms since 2007

My Advice

Just do it, tool kit recommended was perfect, maybe a little more advice about disconnecting electrical plugs, with close up photos....

My Problem

After taking my MacBook Pro to the MAC store and finding out it would cost $95 an hour and 2 weeks to replace a non functioning right cooling fan, I decided to try replacing it myself with the guides from IFixIt.

My Fix

The step by step instructions were clear and concise to the point that I decided to replace the EPRAM battery while I had the notebook apart. Both repairs went very well and the MAC works just fine.

I am very happy with my repair and the support given by Scott in your CA office.

My Advice

I have a suggestion that declaring the difference between the long and short torque screws and where they go should be indicated in the repair manual so you can easily locate and replace them in re-assembly.

My Problem

I had apple fix up my old 17" mac pro for my dad, a couple months later it started making this awful rattle noise. Turns out it was the right fan!

My Fix

Followed the instructions, was awesome, only thing that was kind of tricky was removing the tape from the old fan, and kind of just rolling it back on to the new one... no so sticky after 5+ years I guess. oh well fan works through.

My Advice

Wish I had fixed this sooner, or just replaced both left and right fans while I was at it.

My Problem

The fan had become so loud that I could only stand working on the laptop for about 30 minutes until my head started pounding. It was also starting to cut out, so overheating was a major concern.

My Fix

It went very well. I'd used the manual about 6 months before to get to the fan and blow it out which helped for a while. I had the tools from that time and the confidence that I could do it. The new fan is working perfectly.

My Advice

There are a LOT of very small screws to keep track of. I spread the guide out across the kitchen table and placed screws on the page pertaining to them. Reversing the process and putting it back together was a breeze. I do have one maverick screw in the wrong place and can't retrieve it, but fortunately, I never use that port anyway. : ) Still did the victory dance.

My Problem

Intermittent dry bearing rumble from right side of MBP. Used SMC Fan Control program and Hard Drive exercises to eliminate the left fan and the hard drive. The only other moving part is the right fan.

My Fix

Total time about one hour. I used your guide. It really really helped..big time. Many thanks. Only problem was how to remove the right fan connector from the board. Pull sideways or pull up. I would suggest you add a comment on correct way to pull out. BTW, I found a loose screw that had fallen out of the top section and was trapped by the latch magnet. That could have zapped something if I had not been so lucky.

My Advice

My only advice is to use a mangetized screwdriver. Otherwise you are likely to drop a screw which will promptly disappear.

My Problem

I've had my computer for six years now, and bought it used. It's an old thing by computer standards, but has so much left to give. Small components have failed along the way and now the issue was a scary growing humming sound coming from the right side of the computer. Tried to clean the fan before, but only made the sound worse.

My Fix

So smoothly! The delivery came two days later (even an international shipment - love FedEx) and installed it right away. Only took me 15 minutes to replace the component. The guide goes a long way for those who haven't attempted to open up their computers.

My Advice

Make sure you have the right tools as stated in the guide. Also, while you're at it, might as well give your computer a good clean since your internals are exposed. Use a can of compressed air to lightly dust off the motherboard and other small components. Don't forget to get into the small areas (like the USB ports, and under the motherboard - mine were disgusting).

My Problem

Fan was noisy and running slow.

My Fix

Went smoothly with assistance of iFixit Guide.

My Advice

Use and follow the Guide explicitly and you won't go wrong.
