MacBook Pro 15" Core 2 Duo Models A1226 and A1260 Right Fan Replacement

20 - 30 Minuten

Moderate

Mein Problem

After nearly 4 years of continuous use, the right fan was grinding and buzzing loudly.

Meine Reparatur

As with all MacBook Pro repairs, once all the tiny Phillips and Torx screws are removed, it's usually smooth sailing to replace any component. In this case, I fabricated a small spudger by cutting and taping together the two prongs of a plastic outlet cover. Worked perfectly and my MacBook is nice and quiet now.

Mein Rat

The most important steps usually involve disconnecting the small surface mount ribbon connectors. Either fabricate a soft plastic spudger or invest the $2.95 and purchase one from iFixit. Chances are you will be making another repair on your Mac at some point in the future and you'll want to have one on hand.
