Replaced My MacBook Pro Fan

I was probably crazy for doing it, but I took my MacBook Pro, still protected by AppleCare, and replaced a very noisy fan. Made a video of it too. I just could go a week without my laptop, which is what probably would have happened if I sent it in. Plus, I read a lot of horror stories of people sending in their machines for noisy fans and getting them back just as noisy.

Anyway, it all went well. Took only about 30 minutes. But I got lucky. I could have easily slipped up and ended up with a $2,500 paperweight.
