Default Liquid Cooling Fan Help

Hello everyone, i'm new here just to post this as no other forum will reply to me directly.

I have a liquid cooling sealed chamber with a 240m Radiator.
it has two fans mounted on the bottom of it.

Case Top>Radiator>Fan-Fan>Motherboard

the first fan is faulty, it kinda creeks and makes a rattling noise which is just plain annoying.

I want to switch out the fan but i dont want to take apart the radiator. I was wondering can i just simply take out the 1 fan and swap it out?
it's held on by screw's.

or would I have to take the entire radiator out.

If it's like my Corsair H100, the screw holds the fan and rad to the case, so if you're careful yes, you can.

Just take the rad off and out. Gives you an opportunity to clean the dust off the rad as they hampers cooling as well. If your other fan is still fine I suggest cleaning it when you do this too. You do not need to take the block off the motherboard.
