My Problem

One day my MacBook Pro started rattling very loudly whenever the fans came on. It was very annoying and got in the way of my work.

My Fix

It took me about a half hour to complete the repair, except that I had to run out to get a new screwdriver in the middle of the repair. The repair described in the manuals said I would need a phillips screwdriver. But the screws that held down the fans in my MacBook Pro were actually a very small Torx screw (a star hole in the head). I had to get one since it was a very unusual screwdriver to have. Once I had that, the repair went very smoothly after that.

My Advice

Check to make sure which screws are actually holding down the fans - Torx or Phillips and get the right screwdriver.

My Problem

The fan started groaning like a sick cow about to die or give birth—pick your poison.

My Fix

Extremely easy. It took longer to remove the tiny screws on the bottom of the MBP than it did to replace the fan.

My Advice

Line up the screws in the order they are removed. You don't want to mess up the order. Be sure to have a very tiny star shaped screw driver. Most of mine were too large for the fan screws, but I eventually found one in a tiny screw drive kit I bought a long time ago.
