My Problem

The left fan was making a very loud noise. Like the one you hear when you stick a baseball card in a bikes' spoke. But just to be safe I replaced the right fan too even though it wasn't giving me any problems.

The repair was very easy. I removed the screws holding the bottom cover then the three scre . . .

My Problem

At least one of the fans in my unibody MacBook Pro 17 was making pretty horrific noises. I've had this happen before in MacBook Pro systems. The poor little fans give their all and then die.

My Fix

I replaced both fans just to be sure, it took about 2 minutes to get the case open, and about 2 minutes each . . .
