    I had 16 of them as well. The missing ones are:

    1. Right next to Ethernet drop jaw.

    2. To the left of the battery connector.

    3. Next to VGA, right above the fan.

    Keyboard removal was not necessary to remove the fan for me. Once you get the bottom shell off, the fan subassembly is completely accessible.

    There is a hole by the fan to push the keyboard out instead of prying it out.

    True, i used the hole by the fan to push the keyboard out.

    Heatsink removal is not necessary to take the fan out. You can remove just the fan with its two screws if that is the only thing needing replacement. Like for mine, the fan bearings were bad, but the heatsink was okay though a little dusty..

    Remember, though, to have fresh thermal grease ready if you do decide to remove the heatsink anyway.
