My Problem

Noisy fan and disassembling and lubricating did not fix it.

My Fix

This was an easy repair to do but the new fan was noisy so I pulled the computer apart a second time, disassembled the fan itself, cleaned it as best I could, then reassembled fan and computer and now it is quiet and works well.

My Advice

Dissemble new fan and check for dirt or casting flare before installation.

My Problem

The fan was heading out and was really annoying to listen to

My Fix

Piece of Cake

My Advice

I used a couple of glasses to separate the screws. They are small so Torx and Philips are tough to discern

My Problem

old fan was noisy and possibly in danger of quitting

My Fix

Perfect-- took about half hour-- most time consuming part was all the little screws in the computer body. One small glitch was I did not have any fresh circuit board tape.

My Advice

Don't know if your repair kit includes that yellow tape but it might be an idea.

My Problem

My laptop began making unusual noises and I noticed one of the fans was running slow.

My Fix

Easy! Just took it apart, cleaned everything out and put in the fan.

My Advice

When you need to dust out your laptop, don't put a vacuum cleaner hose right up to the exhaust port so that it causes the fans to spin. This can shorten the lifespan of them by causing them to spin beyond their rated rpm. Just use a brush and some compressed air. If you vacuum, do it carefully.

My Problem

my 17" late 2006 MacBook Pro was making an incredibly loud and angry sound. some basic diagnosis with compressed air revealed the problem to orginiate with the right fan. iFixit had the best part at the best price, and I love the screwdriver kit

My Fix

flawlessly! easy peasy, took about 10 minutes.

My Advice

pro tip: if you haven't taken your MBP apart before I recommend having a dish with compartments to keep the different size screws separate, and safe. I used a box of chocolates left over from valentine's day. also, buy a can of compressed air, because you may as well spray your MBP out good while you have it open.

My Problem

The right fan in the laptop had been making a soft clicking noise on and off for some time. Recently it grew very loud so that you did not want to be in the same room with the machine.

My Fix

The part from IFIXIT arrived very quickly and following the step by step guide made replacing the fan very easy. I did simplify things a bit by not disconnecting the trackpad and keyboard ribbon cable or the display data cable. In the first case I just stood the keyboard assembly up against the screen while replacing the fan. I was able to slip the old fan out and the new fan in under the display cable.

My Advice

The only thing the guide did not address was the black tape along the top edge of the fan. I was able to peel this back to remove the fan and was surprised to see copper foil under the tape. After peeling it back the tape was no longer sticky and therefore does not adhere to the new fan. This does not seem to be a problem since everything is working fine but it would be helpful if the guide gave addressed this issue.

My Problem

High temperatures, fan noise, fan rotation speed less than half wha it should have been

My Fix

The repair guide was outstanding. Step by step, with associated pictures. Best guide of this type I've seen on the web or anywhere else).

My Advice

The only problem I encountered was with shipping. My part appeared to sit in San Luis Obispo for over a week. I expected a certain amount of delay due to holidays, but this took much longer to get than anticipated. Watching the news I saw the reason for the delay - East - East coast truckers were having a tough time with snow and ice. Customer Service was always quick to respond to my concerns and was ready to airmail part if need be.

My Problem

Right fan got very noisy

My Fix

It went perfect, easy with Ifixit guidance, changed left fan in same operation + cleaned both cooling grills, both fans been running since 2007, a lot of hours and Rpms since 2007

My Advice

Just do it, tool kit recommended was perfect, maybe a little more advice about disconnecting electrical plugs, with close up photos....

My Problem

After taking my MacBook Pro to the MAC store and finding out it would cost $95 an hour and 2 weeks to replace a non functioning right cooling fan, I decided to try replacing it myself with the guides from IFixIt.

My Fix

The step by step instructions were clear and concise to the point that I decided to replace the EPRAM battery while I had the notebook apart. Both repairs went very well and the MAC works just fine.

I am very happy with my repair and the support given by Scott in your CA office.

My Advice

I have a suggestion that declaring the difference between the long and short torque screws and where they go should be indicated in the repair manual so you can easily locate and replace them in re-assembly.

My Problem

I had apple fix up my old 17" mac pro for my dad, a couple months later it started making this awful rattle noise. Turns out it was the right fan!

My Fix

Followed the instructions, was awesome, only thing that was kind of tricky was removing the tape from the old fan, and kind of just rolling it back on to the new one... no so sticky after 5+ years I guess. oh well fan works through.

My Advice

Wish I had fixed this sooner, or just replaced both left and right fans while I was at it.
