I just did it to make sure this was right. There are only three screws to remove. One is on the bottom middle frame of the fan cage, one is the screw to the left holding the cable bunch and one is the screw on the top left of the frame just under the power supply.

I wish I had the machines and parts to do that. +

It only costs $80 a month to store all these old things, put a garage full, plus a bedroom full. Be careful what you wish for ;-)

This answer was helpful with the info, however not helpful as the link to Apple discussions no longer exsists. Im only guessing its the fan as its always run with an even sound, but suddenly started making noise like playing cards in a bicycle wheel. Nothing fell inside or anything like that. Sounds like its coming from the fan, so that was my first guess. Any other ideas?
