THANK YOU ifixit.

I have never felt more satisfied from doing a repair in my life!! I have been living with a gentle whirring from my right fan for a few years! This morning it escalated to a very loud grinding (it was so loud it drowned out the radio that was on). I rang a few repair centres and it would have tkaen 2-3 working days and 100-150 euro to replace a fan (estimates).

Between this guide showing me how to open the laptop and remove the fan and another guide which recommended opening the fan and giving the metal pin inside a little clean and lubrication my laptop is now SILENT. I mean really silent. I can't stop smiling. Best ever. And I am by no means a techie.
