    Missing a step about removing the tiny Phillips head screw under the XPS flip up cover in the middle. Also, there are hooks all the way around the cover so it doesn’t simply lift off.

    It’s not that easy to lift actually, cause there are latches. Had t release them gently all around beforehand.

    Also there’s one additional screw under that plate on the bottom!

    Maybe the later models are different, since it should be from the front: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFIE2SKs...

    • If the connector is stubborn, push a little at one side, then the other, to "walk" it out of its socket.

    • Do not pull up.

    • Open the display and press the power button for five seconds to drain any remaining charge from the system.

    DO NOT OPEN THE DISPLAY!!! When I did, on my Dell XPS 13 9360, I cracked something in the top right corner where the power button is, and the plastic part of the button came out. I can still press it, but there is now a gap there and dust can get it.

Great guide! The two hardest parts were getting the back cover off, and lifting the motherboard to remove the fan. Took me about 30 minutes in total.

It would be really easier if you remove the battery screws first… there are some steps that were not clear…

This repair took me about 45 min for a complete novice. “Walking out” the battery connector was only way I could unplug it. There was a retaining bracket overlaying the flat connector (step 8) that I needed to unscrew (2 screws, phillips) before it could be removed. Take care to replace the wire in the wire guides along the fan’s housing prior to reinsertion of the replacement fan. It cannot be done afterwards and the back panel will not be flush. Otherwise, this was an excellent guide and an easy repair.
