Make a Fan Replacement Overnight

by AW

My Problem

My MacBook Pro 13" Mid 2010 fan started to make noises and I was on a business trip.

My Fix

I received the replacement and all the tools needed to make the repair overnight, now the fan is working perfectly. Thanks IFixIt!

My Advice

Must know that the Fan Connector goes pressed over the mainboard and is not connected horizontal at it looks. You must use the spudger to disconnect it vertically.
