Is it possible to replace the HDD Fan?


Recently my iMac froze while some hard rendering and did not respond to anything. After a hard shut down the machine started and shut itself down again and it wasn't possible to start it again.

After about 30 minutes later I tried to start it up again and it worked. Since then I don't have any problems anymore but it did worry me so I checked my mac with the AHT and my HDD fan got the following Error

"Error --9 Motor unable to stabilize between min and max Limits"

So it seems that I have to replace my HDD fan. It is possible to buy it, but how hard is it to replace it? Is there somebody who already did that procedure?

Sorry i thought that was clear since I started the question in the repair guides for my model. My bad, as you can see it is my first question.

I have a Mid 2011 iMac, 27". I hope that is Identification enough. If not I added the 4 last digits of the serial number in a comment on my starting thread.

Mirko - it might not be the fan, but the fan controller. AFAIK there are only two fans in the box a left and a right. I think, but I'm not certain, that the right fan is for the optical drive and the HHD. The left fan for the CPU and the GPU. The right fan is not too difficult to replace... the left one is much more difficult.
