Noisy 17" MacBook Pro
Noisy fans in the MacBook Pro made using the laptop nearly impossible. The high pitch whiny rattle was loud and obnoxious at times and what Apple wanted to charge to fix it was like taking out a second mortgage. So when I found iFixit with guides on "how to" I thought why not?
The guides didn't make it easy, but they did give me the confidence that it would be something I could do. The guides are straight forward and easy to follow. It wasn't long before I was putting it back together and the problem was gone.
Be sure you have the right tools. Don't try to make an oversized phillips screwdriver or torx tool work. Take your time and read through the guides before actually starting the job.
