Fan gone noisy
It was basically impossible to work with this ratling noise...
incredibly well, it was not the first time I opened my mac, I installed an ssd drive before, but even if it was the first time It would have been just fine.
A very important note on the purchase and delivery, having paid with a french card, and shipped to Russia, I was vey sceptical... and so if iFixIt request you to confirm your address with a form, it's ok, it worked, I was very worried at first, but all went very well. The fun part is that I even gave the wrong postal code!! but the local postman figured it out and forwarded it back to the correct center! so I fell very lucky on this one!
The packaging was very nice and thoughful, I felt that I was very well treated and that iFictIt is very serious about what it does. A very positive experience indeed. Will TOTALLY buy again computer parts with you.
you don't need any tool to unplug the fan plug, and to plug the new one back, you just need to press it down, It took me some thinking to understand, I tried to slide it like a regular plug, but no, it only needs to be pressed down.
