    • The fan is held in place by three rubber posts.

    • Using a pair of tweezers, squeeze the top of each post and push the post down into the hole. Repeat for all three posts.

    • During reinstallation, it helps to lubricate the rubber posts. Try weaving a string through the holes in the posts to pull them up through the mounting points.

    • Do not excessively pull on the posts, as they may rip.
