• Mac Mini Mid 2010 Fan Replacement

    Successful install completed, but I had some trouble getting the fan reinstalled. When I removed the fan from the "Step 14" post, the rubber piece stayed on the post. When attempting to reinstall the fan, it was impossible to get the loop to go back over that rubber piece. So, I had to remove the post (again), and with the help of the spudger and some patience, worked it through. Then installed the fan using the 2 screws and the post. I think it may have saved some time and trouble if I just removed all 3 in the first place, leaving the post in the fan.

  • My kit contained a piece of black tape about 3/8" x 1 1/4" with rounded corners that I could not find mentioned in the guide. Is there a recommended place this should be used? My first guess is to use to stick the drive cable down to the drive, but it could also cover or insulate something. Thanks in advance.
