    • 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 easiest connect the fan ribbon cable as you drop the fan in place, rather than after you've installed the three fan screws.

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..
