    • Using the flat end of a spudger, gently pry the battery connector straight up out of its socket on the logic board.

    • Bend the battery cables back and out of the way, ensuring that the battery connector doesn't accidentally make contact with the logic board.

    • Use the flat end of a spudger to lift the rubber heat sink cover up off the left fan.

    • Remove the following three screws securing the left fan to the logic board:

    • One 4.4 mm T5 Torx screw with 2 mm collar

    • One 5.0 mm T5 Torx screw with 2 mm collar

    • One 3.9 mm T5 Wide Head Torx screw

    • When reinstalling the fan and its screws, don't fully torque the screws until you've first installed all of them loosely, so that the fan can move a little and position itself properly as you insert the screws into their threaded standoffs.

    • Use the tip of a spudger to flip up the retaining flap on the left fan ribbon cable ZIF socket.

    • Be sure you are prying up on the hinged retaining flap, not the socket itself.

    • Starting at the top of the cable, slide a plastic opening tool under the left fan cable to free it from the logic board.

    • Use caution when freeing the cable, as it is strongly adhered to the logic board. If necessary, use an iOpener or hair dryer to heat the cable in order to soften the adhesive and make it easier to remove.

    • Lift the left fan out of the device.

    • When reinstalling the fan, it's easier to connect the fan ribbon cable as you drop the fan in place, rather than after you've installed the three fan screws.

Conclusão

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

Very handy and easy guide. No difficulties at all. The only problem i had was the replacement fan (bought on iFixit 2th hand). The screw openings where not exact as original (4mm of the left side bottom side of right fan), but i managed to first soft place the screws in and then all make them tighter. This was the only way it fits. Tested and approved. (you can even feel the broken fan as u hold it and turn it with your vacuum cleaner). Thanks to the author for his work. Happy client..

I attempted to follow this guide for the purpose of removing the fan for cleaning and re-installation. Trouble is, I messed up Step 7 and did lift off the entire ZIFF socket, damaging it in the process. For good measure I did the same thing on the right fan. (Obviously, I'm not practiced at this kind of thing!) My question is: Does this mean the computer is now ruined? Or is there a way to recover from this?
