Awesome guide, just replaced faulty fan unit in my 9 year old wii. Should hopefully keep it going for another 9 years :)

Super easy and great instructions! I feel a little guilty that my Wii sat in the garage for 4 years! Now it'll be a great birthday present for my 2 boys.

Does anyone have a diagram for the Wii’s airflow? I’m looking to install a booster fan at the bottom to help blow air in but I want to make sure it is effective.
