If your joycons are not charging, it could be the fans fault as they seem to share a 1.8v and or 5v rail, I had both joycons refusing to charge, and the fan was not working, so by replacing the fan, it had them charging properly again.

There are a few steps left out, that really should be included.

First and most importantly, at Step 7 the MicroSD card slot needs to be removed before the shield plate can be removed. There is an additional screw to remove, and a cable to disconnect before the piece can be taken off. The shield plate won't come off until that has been done.

Secondly, it's easier to remove the fan and insert the new one if you fold back the board covering the grommet. To do so, remove two screws holding the black plastic piece in place (at the bottom-right of the fan. Then remove the single additional screw holding that board, disconnect the ribbon cable that covers the grommet, and fold the board gently to the side. That will expire the grommet and make it much easier to move the fan out and replace it.

Third, realistically before you can insert the new fan you need to remove a screw holding the rubber grommet in place and transfer the grommet to the new fan. None of this can be done until the step above had been done.

You’re right about the Micro SD Card removal missing. I’ve gone ahead and added that step in. In regards to the the fan removal, removing the game card read/headphone jack board isn’t necessary for the fan removal.

thank you for the tip!

If I'm just replacing the fan, do I need to clean off/reapply any thermal paste?
