    I had my 2011 Mini's logic board replaced and when I was checking to see if they put back my 8GB ram I noticed that the fan assembly had some play in it when you wiggle it. The screws all seem tight when I checked with my T6 torn but I am not sure if the play is normal. The screw closest to the exhaust vent is different from the 2 nearest to the airport antenna. Can any one check if theirs has play? Id like to get them to fix it again if this isn't normal.

    normal. rubber gaskets are used to cut down noise. the rubber causes a bit of play. also 1 screw is not the same as the other two

    Thats what I though after checking if it was already tight with a T6 Torx
