Repair MacBook Pro cooling fan rattling
Authored by: cybernanga on Feb 15, '11 03:31:29PM

About a year and a half ago, I had the same issue with the right-hand-side fan in my Santa Rosa MacBook Pro, I was miles from "civilisation" at the time, so I used what I had handy, which was Vaseline Petroleum Jelly. I didn't think it would last long, but the noise was driving me crazy, so I thought what the heck, I can always replace the fan when I get back home.

To my constant surprise, the MacBook has behaved normally ever since.
