    • Place your thumbs in the depressions cut into the bottom cover.

    • Rotate the bottom cover counter-clockwise until the white dot painted on the bottom cover is aligned with the ring inscribed on the outer case.

      • You do not need to apply much downward pressure while turning.

  2. Tilt the mini enough to allow the bottom cover to fall away from the outer case.
    • Tilt the mini enough to allow the bottom cover to fall away from the outer case.

    • Remove the bottom cover and set it aside.

    • Remove the two 11.3 mm T6 Torx screws securing the fan to the logic board near the antenna plate.

    • Lift the ear of the fan nearest the RAM up off the standoff secured to the outer case.

    • Removing the standoff screw is not necessary to remove the fan. You need only raise the fan enough to lift it off the standoff screw.

    • Lift the fan out of the mini for enough clearance to access its connector.

    • Grab all the wires at once and gently pull straight up to disconnect the fan from the logic board. Alternatively, slide a spudger underneath the wires and pry up to disengage the connector.

      • Do not pry at the socket, or you will rip it from the logic board.

    • Remove the fan.
