Cooling fan replacement

by ajnhipy1

My Problem

After taking my MacBook Pro to the MAC store and finding out it would cost $95 an hour and 2 weeks to replace a non functioning right cooling fan, I decided to try replacing it myself with the guides from IFixIt.

My Fix

The step by step instructions were clear and concise to the point that I decided to replace the EPRAM battery while I had the notebook apart. Both repairs went very well and the MAC works just fine.

I am very happy with my repair and the support given by Scott in your CA office.

My Advice

I have a suggestion that declaring the difference between the long and short torque screws and where they go should be indicated in the repair manual so you can easily locate and replace them in re-assembly.
