My Problem

The right fan of our Mac was making an awful noise the whole time, so my son and me, we wanted to get the Mac being quite again!

My Fix

Thanks to the great manual from ifxit, my son, 12 years old, could replace the right fan, and I was just making sure he was really following the tasks step by step :-)

And we were happy the delivery of the new fan was very quick, it took only 3 days from the US to Switzerland!

My Advice

Use cups for each type of screws, see our first photo. And use a tape to mark the three disconnected cables, to connect them at the right position again, see our second photo.

My Problem

The right fan sounded like a jet airplane was fixin to take off from my desk. Occasionally it sounded like someone dropped a box of loose screws in that jet engine.

My Fix

The repair went well. The online walkthrough at iFixit was invaluable in knowing some of the little things about different connectors and necessary intermediate steps.

I wasn't too happy with the shipping. The new fan arrived in an envelope and had been squished on one side. I got it straightened out and hoped for the best.

My Advice

The repair process when smoothly. The screws and connectors you remove can be very small. Make sure you have a work area without any breezes or moving air.

Also, some of the very small screws are subtly different in size. The screws that hold the back on the laptop are all the same head, but VERY slightly different in length. Same goes for the screws that hold the fan in. Be sure you keep track of which screw came from which hole.
