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

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 though, get the high-end driver.

Also there's a rubber air guide/seal on the original Fan that you have to peel off and stick to the new fan - as the replacement fan doesn't include it - no biggie, just FYI!

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 replace the fan.

My Fix

Fantastic! I had already purchased the official iFixIt tool kit and spudger and it hadall of the bits that I needed to open the macbook air and safety perform all of the necessary operations.

From start to finish and successful reboot with the new fan, it took less than 45 minutes. Thank you so much iFixIt!

My Advice

Make sure you have some dedicated container(s) for all of the teeny tiny screws that are part of this process.

Also - be sure to put the dampening rubber that's on the old fan and transfer it to the new fan (the new fan did not come with it).

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.
