When putting it all back together:

Step 15

Make sure to put the end furthest away from the hinge under the ribbon cable first.

Then place the hinge side. The screw furthest away from the hinge is partially obscured by the ribbon cable.

Step 14 (Part 1)

Start the screws enough to hold the fan in place but don’t tighten them until after step 13.

Step 13

Since the screws are not tight from step 14, putting the fan cable back into the ZIF connector is easier.

Step 14 (Part 2)

Tighten the screws after step 13

Step 12

Continue doing the steps backwards as normal.
