    • Remove the following 10 screws securing the lower case to the MacBook Pro 13" Unibody:

      • Seven 3 mm Phillips screws.

      • Three 13.5 mm Phillips screws.

    • Slightly lift the lower case and push it toward the rear of the computer to free the mounting tabs.

    • For precautionary purposes, we advise that you disconnect the battery connector from the logic board to avoid any electrical discharge.

    • Use the flat end of a spudger to lift the battery connector up out of its socket on the logic board.

    • Use a spudger to pry up the fan connector out of its socket on the logic board.

    • It is useful to twist the spudger axially from beneath the fan cable wires to release the connector.

    • The fan socket and the fan connector can be seen in the second and third pictures. Be careful not to break the plastic fan socket off the logic board as you use your spudger to lift the fan connector straight up and out of its socket. The layout of the logic board shown in the second picture may look slightly different than your machine but the fan socket is the same.

    • Remove the following three screws:

      • One 7 mm T6 Torx screw

      • Two 5.4 mm T6 Torx screws

    • Lift the fan out of the upper case.

Conclusione

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

Thanks Walter Galan for this guide its my first repair using fixit.

So I noticed MacBook Pro’s Fan is not working leaving the equipment very hot.

I bought a new part in Ifixit and repair my laptop.

The trickiest part is removing the motherboard connector. I did this using spudger tool with success but spend some time with careful.

Just I noticed again before install new part that is noising when spinning. So I force a little the the metal case to put away propellers that was contacting with her.

Another suggestion is clean fan before with a hair dryer for example, same to the place where will put the new fan.

So repair made with sucess!!!

The repair was quick and simple with the use of an iFixit toolkit that I conveniently already had. The fan works well. Thank you to Walter Galan for this easy-to-follow guide and thank you to the guys at the iFixit store for the speedy shipment.

Image #4 is very misleading. This is why many people are breaking their connectors. Please correct this and make it VERY clear that one has to put the spudger straight behind the cables, NOT behind the connector, as shown in the pic.
