If your screen is facing you, this is the fan on the left side of the machine. Includes fan and surrounding metal bracket.

When the ancient Egyptians needed to cool their laptops from the sweltering desert heat, they would artfully skip them back and forth over the Nile for hours on end, carefully endeavoring to avoid full-immersion computer baptism. Abate the heat while keeping your MacBook Pro 15" as dry as a desert with our replacement left fan.

Repair Stories

My Problem

The fans were slowly dying over time and I was ignoring the issue. It wasn't until the fan completely cut out in the system started watchdogging from the machine overheating when I decided that I needed to really get the system repaired so I can get my work done.

My Fix

Pulled the old fans out put the new f . . .

My Problem

The MacBook Pro was making a lot of noise, seeming to be full of bees! Thankfully, it was merely the fan dying.

My Fix

The repair followed the guide in detail. Sadly, I had grabbed the wrong guide. I was able to work backwards to fix the improper steps and then was able to follow the correct steps. The fan . . .

My Problem

My original MacBook Pro's left fan bit the dust and started making a racket a couple of years ago. I decided at the time to save a few bucks and get a used fan from a different company. The replacement never "failed" per se, but it was never really quiet, either. It started getting slightly louder, . . .

My Problem

Like many owners of the 2007-2008 generation of MacBook Pros, it only took a couple years before the left fan became increasingly loud. After 5 years, it was deafeningly loud. I couldn't take it any more.

My Fix

Smoothly for the most part. The guide I used wasn't specific in parts that needed to be specific . . .

My Problem

My fan had been making an intermittent whirring noise - like an engine was inside (disturbing co-workers and probably impairing my machine's ability to cool).

My Fix

Repair went fine - I missed a couple of screws and had trouble getting the cover off (my mistake), but retraced steps. Laptop works fine now, . . .

My Problem

The Left Fan was still working, but making very scary noises as it heated up.

My Fix

I waited too long to order a new fan. In fact I first ordered the wrong one, and Ifixit very graciously allowed me to return it, but by the time the right fan arrived, I may have "cooked" my hard drive. I changed the hard d . . .

My Problem

Noisy fans and very slow performance, couldn't justify replacing my old A1211 15" MBP for the sake of a few components. So got the fans from yourselves - you were cheaper than sourcing them in the UK. I sourced a SSD in the UK (Samsung 850 Pro 256GB) I know a little extreme but it has a 10 year warr . . .

My Problem

My MacBook Pro is pretty old, and I got it second-hand, so it's been through a lot. The left fan started to buzz every once in a while, not really a big deal. But, one day it just started screaming super loud and wouldn't stop.

My Fix

The repair went really well. While I had the case apart I also took the t . . .
