I have a late 2008 Macbook Pro 15" with the 2.53 GHz 6MB L2 cache processor and the 512 MB 9600GT. While tearing it down, I accidentally took the entire fan connector of the leftside fan completely off the logic board. I took it to the Apple store, where they said that they wanted $1,500 to buy a new logic board. I have this weird feeling that they are trying to rip me off, and that they could have repaired the fan connector. Does anyone have a method to reattach the connector or something? It doesn't matter if it will void the warranty because it's already expired. Thanks.
