MacBook Air 11" Mid 2011 Fan Replacement

15 Minuten


Mein Problem

Old fan was making all sorts of noise. I didn't even realize my Mac had a fan for years until this fan started to go, and then it was obvious as a blue sky.

Meine Reparatur

Overall, it was a pretty easy repair, but a tad trickier than a standard PC laptop due to the tight tolerances and incredibly small parts. If you can put the Mac in a shallow box so no screws get lost in the process, it'll probably help considerably.

Mein Rat

The only super tricky part was sliding the new fan's ribbon cable into the slot. I used the spudger and pushed on the only small crease I could find to slide it into the slot. I suggest powering it on while still apart to verify functionality, then power it off and finish stitching everything back together.
