Leigh, here is the page that has the disassembly guide. Click on the link and download it. It will show you how to disassemble your Acer and will show you where the fan is located and how it is fastened. Hope this helps, good luck.
We have a chance to guarantee our right to repair electronic
equipment—like smartphones, computers, and even farm equipment. This is a once-in-a-generation
chance to protect local repair jobs—the corner mom-and-pop repair shops that
keep getting squeezed out by manufacturers.
Join the cause and tell your state representative to support Right to Repair. Tell them you believe repair should be fair, affordable, and accessible. Stand up for your right to repair!
