Hey Sebastian,

Apple has been revamping their internal cooling systems a lot over the last few MacBook iterations. Because of this, the fans and connectors have been changing each time. Unfortunately, you cannot put a Retina fan inside of an older MB Pro.

Check out where the retina fan's connector is versus where the Unibody's connector is.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the reply. I guess the cable is not a problem for a skilled person. I wonder if it even fit into the fan's place... Must check it! ;-)
