I was desperate to get the failing fan out of my MacBook pro 2009 13". The screw stripped immediately (are these things made of pewter?!). What worked for me was taking a thin flat head and carving the screw in half circles counter clockwise until it came loose. The metal is that soft, it eventually loosened up and came out!
