    I need to replace it in one of my A1181 MacBooks but there are 2 fan sizes. How can I be sure I'm getting the right size? I need the smaller fan version.

    Thanks!

    This should help you identify which you need.

    Note there are a fan for older Macbooks, and also one for the SantaRose/Penryn models, which would be the newer ones. Looks like the smaller fan is for the older MacBooks, but you would need to check that out yourself.

    Apple's part number for the fan in the Mid-2007 Macbook is 922-7887
    So - correct fan is this one - https://www.ifixit.com/MacBook-Parts/MacBook-Fan/IF186-003-1

    You can also use Apple's part number to search for other sites that sell that same fan - but the iFixit one is not too bad for price, I think.
