How to grease fans bearing?

Hi,

I would clean my PowerBook G4 Aluminium 17'' fans cause those are really loudy, the noise sounds like something vibrating, rumbling.

So I've follow iFixit tutorial to access the fans but the top of the fan is covered by a little metal plug that avoid me to grease the axe of the fan, I don't know how to remove or open it.

Does someone have a solution to clean and grease those PowerBook fans?

Thx by advance

Hi, The noises you describe sound like the fan bearings are going bad and I suspect you probably need to replace the fans. By all means try cleaning the fans first--you may get lucky.

@ Jonathon: don't use WD40 to lubricate your fan instead use sewing machine oil. Check this link and you'll know why:

You could blow the dust off, but it's really hard to actually disassemble and grease them. Try dusting it first (it's free?) and try that...
