    My Macbook Pro 2006 started doing a peculiar noise on the right side, which sounds very much like something's wrong with the right fan.

    I checked with Istat the performance of fans and they seem to be working fine at 1685 right fan and 1664 rpm the left one.

    Any hints? :)

    Thank you, Gema

    Its quite common for the bearing and/or motor to give after a few years from dust build up, etc. I replaced mine about 6 months ago. Ordered the fan directly from ifixit.

    Fan just died

    Thank you for the reply!
    The fan has just died and I'm in the middle of nowhere for a month. Shall I not use the computer at all until I arrive home?
    Is it ok to use it occasionally?
    Thanks GEMA
