What screwdriver do I need to replace my fan?

So I got a Macbook pro 13" bought in September 2011 and my fan makes a rattling noise, I think I can fix it, but I can't get out the fan because I don't have the right screwdriver. What screwdriver do I need to get out the fan?

I think I need a six point, but I'm not sure and I don't want to buy the wrong one.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Before attempting a self repair on this I would personally take this to Apple under your 1 year Manufacturers warranty. If you would prefer to take a look at the issue yourself then you would need a T6 Torx screwdriver to remove the screws from the fan.

Hope this helps,
