    Hi folks,

    I'm hoping someone can help me before I open up both computers. The fan on my 06 macbook ran incredibly noisy for about 6 months and has now kicked the bucket (no amount of cleaning helped either). As a result my laptop now turns off fairly frequently when it hits its temp ceiling.

    My girlfriend has a water damaged macbook she bought in June 2008 and I'm wondering if I could use the fan on it to replace mine. Does anyone know? I can get more specific about her model if it matters.

    cheers!

    I don't think they will fit. Apple changed the internal layout a few times over the years. Check out ifixit.com for finding out stuff about that. I think they cost about US$42.99 for a new one.
