My Problem

The right fan was making a horrible noise. It started out sounding like a purring kitten, and turned in a snoring fat tiger. It was unbearable to work on.

My Problem

right fan on MacBookPro went crazy. Unbearable noise.

My Fix

I followed iFixit step-by-step, got the fan out, cleaned & added a drop of WD-40. Was OK for a day, but then noisy again. Ordered replacement - used - from iFixit. Opened MBP up again, swapped the fan - now running again super quiet. Very sati . . .

My Fix

Repair went w/o a hitch. This is the 3rd time I've opened the machine (SSD, new keyboard) so I knew what to expect. Had the tools including the spudger from earlier forays. . . .

My Problem

The original fan was, how should I say it...sounding like a freight train derailing in a crowded intersection.

My Fix

The repair went without any issues. Once I installed the fan, laptop is back to its whispery quiet old self.

My Advice

Use iFixit. The warranty is a stress reliever, and they provide detailed instruc . . .
