Good video. But you stopped short of removing the PSU fan. This is the part I am trying to replace. It has black rubber plugs in the 4 corners that seem very difficult to remove. I don't want to break them. Any help would be appreciated.

@Chris - Did you ever find out how to remove and replace the PSU fan in your Mac Pro?

@Chris - Not a stupid question. I am trying to replace mine too. This looks to be the hardest, least explained part to replace on these Mac Pros. I'm pulling my hair out.

May be a stupid question but does anyone know how to remove the psu fan it's held in by black rubber catches but I don't wormy to break them just to take out the fan. Any help would be great

There's a second screw on my 3,1 2008 8x2.8: at the very bottom of the fan unit at the corner nearest the heart shield. Easy to remove, difficult to put back, but once it and the black one on the board are out it's super easy. I can see why you have to pull the graphics card to pull the heat shield, but no idea why they have the memory unit loosened. Heat shield is held on by magnets BTW.

Thanks! I did find that...now what I'm struggling with is that it DOES look like my fan cage doesn't pull right out either. I removed the one black screw I could see (top right corner if fans are facing left) is there a second screw?
