My Problem

Old fan was making all sorts of noise. I didn't even realize my Mac had a fan for years until this fan started to go, and then it was obvious as a blue sky.

My Fix

Overall, it was a pretty easy repair, but a tad trickier than a standard PC laptop due to the tight tolerances and incredibly small parts. If yo . . .

My Problem

Fan was not cooling my Macbook Air 11"... I had to use an app to speed up my fan's rotational speed to keep my mac cool. Finally I decided to replace the fan.

My Fix

It was easy with the instructions provided by IFIXIT.

My Advice

Have a good workspace and time to methodically complete any repair.

My Problem

After troubleshooting SOOO MANY THINGS - it was clear that the issue was isolated to the fan. It sounded like, based on all other forums I had read, that the ball bearing in the fan had run it's course and the least expensive route (short of shooting some silicone lubricant into the fan) was to rep . . .

My Problem

Fan stopped working. Turned out my lazy-self got a piece of a shreddie stuck inside. Regular for me; irregular for a laptop.

My Fix

Everything went according to plan except the driver (P5) stripped. iFixIt dispatched a replacement NEXT DAY! Wow, what service.

My Advice

If you have multiple P5-bolt-burdened devices tho . . .

My Problem

The fan wasn't working anymore, and made a light repetitive click noise.

My Fix

Well. But opening was enough. No need to change the fan, there was just some crumble blocking the fan…

My Advice

Good luck
