repairing an overheated Apple Time Capsule

After some years of work without issues, my Time Capsule begun to show some trouble with fan going on at full speed. Then in the last week of August it has suddenly died with a looooooong beep.

In this video it’s been show how-to correctly disassemble an Apple Time Capsule and clean / recondition a faulty fan. From a technical standpoint the entire process is a PITA and to me it’s a real design error the placement of the unique fan and the fact that in the Capsule there’s no opening on the top to facilitate the heat dissipation!
