    My 2-day old rMBP starting making this noise, possibly from the fans. I may send it back. What do you think?

    I recorded a memo earlier using my iPhone.

    Turn up the volume.

    Do you think it's something that I can and should look at myself? I mean, it can't be that hard, removing a stuck dust/paper-thing in the fans, can it?

    renturn or fix it

    If you are not sure how to do the following steps or afraid to loose the Apple Care
    just take it back to an Apple reseller or whereever you bought it, get a replacement or let them have a look. And i Would take it back if I were you or open it just for te fun of it :D

    use the proper tools to open the bottom.
    probably: Apple's annoying Pentalope screw, which you probably have to buy. just see iFixit for the tools needed ;)
    but I don't have a rMBP so you just have to find out for yourself.

    follow these steps, the fans are at step 12,
    I usually don't bother removing the battery link when I remove my fans from my MBP 2011.
    but for your own good might be a good Idea to remove it :p
    if there are some funky stuff in it, use a toothbrush or something.

    Thanks for your help, but I decided to return it. Getting a new one soon.
