Fans were held in place by 4 nylon screws per fan. Removed the fans,
did a deep de-dusting of the fans, heat sinks and inside the chassis,
then carefully removed the labels from the fans and put 2 drops
of oil into each fan's axle.
Everything went back together, the fans are quieter, the fan that would
stop working momentarily is working normally, and I didn't break
anything or have screws left over!
Nice job! I remember being in a similar situation with a "homebrew" amd64 server that i inherited. These had metal screws. Servicing the fans helped for a while but i eventually had to replace them. I've broken newer and
smaller hardware that has more plastic parts, so i understand the feeling of relief when it still works after reassembly.
