    So I accidentally broke the socket where the connector of the fan goes, on my Unibody Macbook.
    You can see what it looks like in Step 5 at the following link, second picture:

    Basically, only one pin from the socket was broke along with a bit of plastic, and the fan still works after I improvised and put something to hold it in place. But I believe the repair guys would find it easier to replace the socket than to solder one pin. Any ideas where I could buy such electronic components ?

    EDIT:

    I found the product on eBay US, but the shippingto Europe is too expensive. I remember there was a website and travelling people would help each other.
