Einleitung

If your Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Gen 1 Extreme (model number 20MF-000LUS used in this guide) is overheating or making clicking noises, use this guide to remove the fan.

While this laptop has been noted to get quite hot and loud, this should typically only occur when charging or using high intensity applications. The laptop should not be overheating when idle.

Keep in mind that an entire replacement of the fan may not be necessary, as the problem could potentially be built up dust or a foreign object. If this is the case, removing the fan and cleaning it out with compressed air could solve the issue.

  1. Orient the laptop so that it is bottom up, and the track pad is closest to you. Unscrew the seven cover screws with a Phillips #00 head screwdriver. These screws will loosen, but will stay attached to the cover.
