    Try ifixit.com for the part, and look on the site for a a guide (with photos!) to learn the installation procedure if you aren't already familiar with the process.

    You should be able to buy one from your local Apple service centre. I ended up buying the fans for my MBP from a service centre and it actually cost me less than most online sources.
