  9. Do not yank the upper case off quickly. The case is attached to the logic board via a ribbon cable. Lift up at the rear of the case and work your fingers along the sides, freeing the case as you go. Once you have freed the sides, you may need to rock the case up and down to free the front of the upper case. There are four plastic clips above the DVD slot, and another above and to the left of the IR sensor.  These clips can be very difficult to disengage without prying.  They can also be difficult to re-engage during reassembly.

    • Reassembly Tip: Press down firmly on the tip of the top case above the location of each clip until you hear a snap to reseat them in their slots.

    • Reassembly Tip: The two center DVD clips will rarely snap back into place properly without help, and downward pressure will instead simply deform the frame around the DVD slot. Support the frame by inserting a plastic spudger into the DVD slot directly under the clip location until it is snug, then press down until you hear the snap.

  10. Disconnect the trackpad and keyboard ribbon cable from the logic board, removing tape as necessary. Note: It is possible to replace the hard drive without disconnecting the keyboard from the chassis, but it will need to be held upright to keep it out of the way, while still allowing you both hands to work on the drive removal.

    • Be careful when removing the keyboard-trackpad ribbon cable to ensure that the rear of the upper case is disengaged from the area near the hinge. It is easy to accidentally bend the screw receivers on either side of the keyboard.

I used this to take the fan out and blow it out with compressed air, and it solved my fan noise problem!

Followed the instructions and it was all fairly straightforward, but my right speaker now appears to not be working. I haven't had the motivation to crack the case again and see if I can find what is wrong with that. At least the grinding fan noise is gone, so I can live with it for now.

I had no problems replacing the left fan as per instructions. Even though I did buy the spudger, the only hitch for me was the isight cable which I didn't end up disconnecting. I was able to gently remove the fan anyway.

Just organise your screws properly as you go along & they will all go back into place !

Very happy !

I didn't see the reason for step 10, I did not disconnect the iSight cable and had no problem getting the fan out and in. The black tape lifted from the fan assemblies does not stick well on reassembly so I added a piece of tape over the original tape.

I wanna thank OP for this article. I used it to replace a rattly left fan in my 17" macbook, honestly in pretty easy fashion. Again, your thoroughness is very appreciated!!
