Default Need help removing fan

Hi

I recently decided to upgrade my power supply for my computer but in order to create the space necessary to remove my current one i need to temporarily remove a fan attached to the motherboard. The fan is an ACER H1.3670C.001 REV B FOX CONN. I only need to remove the fan (not the heatsink) and see no obvious way to take it off. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Here are some pics of the fan

It would be of great help if you could possibly post a pic of the inside of your case so we know what kind of heatsink you have going on with the fan.

Those files are on your computer. There is no way for us to access them; upload to an image hosting website such as Photobucket or ImageShack.

Just upload to imageshack so we can actually see what you're working with.

ImageShack® - Image Hosting, then navigate to the files, upload, and post the links here.
