Cooling fan in my ancient out of warranty launch day Wii quit working causing overheating, intermittent freezes and reboots.
Just like any other piece of electronics I've owned I attempted to order a replacement fan from Nintendo and was denied by a manufacturer for the first time. I even attempted to bribe their staff with free pizza to no avail. Apparently they would rather me find a fan at shady places that are in the 'mod/piracy' business as every legitimate parts supplier seems no longer allowed purchase them either.
With the proper tools the repair went without a hitch. Took less than 10 minutes. I didn't need the guide but I checked it anyway in case I missed something.
I found my fan on eBay which included an offer to buy a 1TB USB hard drive with 500 pirated Wii games on it. Thank you Nintendo!
(Didn't take them up on the offer BTW)
