    Question ASUS G751JY Fans make a scraping or grinding sound

    Hello,

    I bought my G751 laptop last year. I've heard recently grinding noises.
    I would like to oil the fans but I need to access the fan's lubrication well which is usually protected by a sticker. Unfortunatly I do not see any sticker to peel.
    All seems hermetically sealed.
    Asus tech support doesn't seem to help me with that issue. They just want me to send a RMA/Repair form.
    Repair is expensive and they take away my computer serveral days I don't know where.

    As my warranty is out, I would like to repair it myself.
    Is there a way to oil properly the Asus G751 CPU and GPU fans?

    Thanks for your advices.

    Oiling these notebook fans only 'fixes' them for a short period of time, and most of them are not servicable (oiling) without some serious DIY-ing or drilling a hole in it. I have some experience with these thing. Often the best method is to buy some replacement fan(s) from Amazon or other online retailer and replace the whole thing yourself. In the long run It pays off by not wasting your time oiling them every other month.
