Repair MacBook Pro cooling fan rattling
Authored by: BigBadbenny on Feb 15, '11 05:43:37AM

I use a tiny blob of lithium grease on top of the spindle.
The worst buzzing seems to come from dust that's traveled through the vents - so I advise (my kids especially) to not leave the Mac on a dusty, soft surface such as a bed. Better to use an inexpensive laptop stand to keep the Mac out of the dust and well ventilated.
