  4. Remove the three 3.4 mm T6 Torx screws securing the left fan to the logic board.
    • Remove the three 3.4 mm T6 Torx screws securing the left fan to the logic board.

      • In some models, these T6 Torx screws may be 3.1 mm long.

  5. Use the flat end of a spudger to disconnect the left fan connector from the logic board. It is useful to twist the spudger axially from beneath the fan cable wires to release the connector. The fan socket and the fan connector can be seen in the second and third pictures. Be careful not to break the plastic fan socket off the logic board as you use your spudger to lift the fan connector straight up and out of its socket. The layout of the logic board shown in the second picture may look slightly different than your machine but the fan socket is the same.

The left fan was making hideous growling and screeching noises and the unit was overheating. Replacement was pretty easy with the right tools, which I had already purchased from iFixit. New fan works great and the unit now runs VERY much cooler...!

After I had finished installing a new left fan, my mac (for whatever reason) refused to boot up. After turning on, the screen would just show the white background with the grey apple logo, and the pinwheel cursor spinning. After resetting the SMC and NVRAM, however, I booted up right away. Thanks, iFixIt! This was my first time for a DIY Mac repair and you couldn't have made it any easier.

Just did this replacement. My left fan was totally shot, making the grinding noise etc even after cleaning it with compressed air. My computer is running almost 50 degrees celsius cooler. Its AWESOME

the only tricky bit is the sprudger / re attaching the fan's connector. So worth it. Thanks!

Just cleaned the dust from my Macbook and fans. Made a sprudger with some bamboo from an old kitchen utensil in my shop. I did precisely as you directed removed the fans, blew them clean as well as the heat sinks and voila it’s all good again. Thank you so much.

The screws securing the fan on my model seemed to be T5 rather than T6.
