You'll need to remove the board from the case. There's two anchors
on opposite corners of the fan to be pushed from the trace side. A
pair of hemostats are handy to crush them shut so they'll fit through.
Ya tear them up in the process, no big thing. If a replacement fan
exists, it's not worth the hunting. A glue-on heat sink will do the
job just fine, even on a machine that runs constantly.
