Step 1 — Fan ¶
Look for tabs in between esc and f1, f4 and f5, f8 and f9, f12 and scroll.
Pull these tabs towards you.
Step 2 ¶
Flip the laptop over and on the back of the center of the keyboard there is a screw with a rectangle beside it that looks like a keyboard. Remove this Phillips 5mm screw and another similar screw in the back top left of the keyboard.
Then carefully lift the keyboard out of place with your fingernails or a plastic opening tool.
Step 3 ¶
There will be a metallic film attached to the keyboard from the motherboard. A black latch runs along the film keeping it in place. Lift the latch and detach the film; remove it to fully remove the keyboard.
Step 4 ¶
Carefully undo the white film the same way you took out the metallic film
Once this film is removed the bar with the power button and media tools above the keyboard will pop out of place using a spudger.
Step 5 ¶
Underneath, a metal clamp will be revealed with two Torx Security T7 17mm screws. Unscrew these.
Carefully lift the cable out of place that is to the right of it.
Step 6 ¶
Unscrew these two JIS #1 5mm screws on the fan.
Carefully unplug the fans' wires.
Remove the fan and put in new one.
