My T61 started sounding louder than my Royal Enfield yesterday and today I got the dreaded Fan Error message and no boot. Luckily I'd checked a few YT vids on how to disassemble it yesterday.
So, I bravely put on my lucky underwear and took it to bits this afternoon.
It's not really a tricky job, but it does require a fine, magnetic Philips screw driver and a guitar pick. I'm sure the debate will rage about what thickness is best, but personally, I used a .60 Jim Dunlop to get the speaker cover off.
It wasn't as dirty in there as I'd expected, but I took the opportunity to give it a good going over with some pressurized air and heavy-duty wire brush.
OK. One of those was a lie.
Well..! Result. Some sewing machine oil to the 4 fan wheels has done the trick wonderfully.
Now.. What to do with all these left-over screws..
