Fan out of order

MacBook Pro 15" Unibody Mid 2010 Right Fan Replacement

Moderate

My Problem

Sunddenly one of my laptop's fan became noisy. It is summer and hot inside the houses here in France, hence I immediatly decided to change both of them by security without trying to find wich one started to have a break down. Ordered on Thursday, received next Monday => great experience !!

My Fix

I performed changes in less than 10 minutes, because I have the right tools and already undusted fans in past !

Of course, before touching the mainboard, I have disconnected the battery to avoid any electric shock.

My Advice

A soft brush can be very usefull for the first clean-up inside. Of course, perform that very very carefully without pressure : this has to be like a caress ! Then an air-spray is also very usefull, and do not forget to put screws far from the laptop when spraying (lol) ...

I guess that this is a safety method compared to the use of a vacuum, that can dramatically damage components, even more in such laptop !
