    hi. my MBP left fan sounds like it is getting caught as it makes a really noticeable continuous clicking sound. when the fans get faster, the clicking gets faster. i was wondering if anyone else has had any experiences with this, and no, i haven't dropped it. lol.

    thank you.

    I have the 15in MBP C2D and i had a fan buzzing type sound. I dealt w/ it for 2 weeks before i took it in to get looked at. Turns out it was a piece of thermal tape that had come unstuck and was rubbing the fan. Obviously noise got louder as fan sped up. It was kinda loud and annoying. I got it back 3 days later covered under warrenty. It was real quiet when i got it back. By the way i have a week 43 MBP. Hope this helps.
