    • Carefully lift up the top panel, because there are two blue ribbon cables that must be disconnected before removing the panel, and we do NOT want them to break.

    • After gently disconnecting the two ribbon cables (you can just pull them out with your hand), take the top off and set it to the side.

    • First we need to unscrew the fan from before we can remove it.

    • Remove both copper colored 10mm screws with a #2 phillips screwdriver.

    • As you remove the second screw, pull the fan inward to remove it from the remainder of the case. It should now only be connected to the case through a cable attached to the circuit board.

    • The disk drive is removed in the pictures, however this is not necessary to replace the fan and can be ignored.
