Can't you just leave fan assembly installed and start cleaning it with brush and compressed air once you have bottom case cover off? What about just blowing air thru the grill covering the fan and not even removing the bottom case cover?

I just red it and found it's not for me. But i still felt I'd instantly send $1 to the author, besides those points, which i do not care of.

So I suggest to FIXIT.COM to offer it optionally. I meean... Optinally if you want you may send $1 or more to the author.... and I would put "1" ass default. I want it tobe JUST ONE CLICK. Otherwise I leave.

Merci, j'ai réussi à ouvrir mon Toshiba grâce à ce tuto. J'ai dû changer le ventilateur qui était bruillant. http://ventilaptop.com/toshiba/580002-ve...
