ummm.... Don't. Or just duct tape the new one two the back of the ps3, splice the wires and run them to your washer/dryer plug and stick the copper wire in the 220 connection (you will have to unplug your dryer but your ps3 wont overheat anymore).

SOURCE: ps3 fan doesnt work?
I have solution for all of you. You need to call sony at 1-800-345-7669. They will send you a box so you can place you unit in (ps3). If you got warrany on your ps3 they will ask you to send in a copy to varify that it is still in warrany. If it is then they will not charge you anything they will open up the system and see what the problem is either fix the ps3 or they will replace it with a refuribished one. Also you need to make sure that the warrany tag on the ps3 upper right side is still there or they will charge you 150 dollars. And if the serial on the back is removed they will not even service your unit. If you unit is not in warrany they will charge you 150 dollars. Wich is real good because they will dust the interior of it good luck everyone...

you can purchase a usb powered external fan that fixes to the back of the ps3 from ebay for less than $30 or 15 gbp.
i think attempting to replace the interior fan will invalidate sonys gaurantee ,if it still is under warranty.
lastly i would suggest the obvious and make sure you have you ps3 out in the open and not in an an enclosed environment like a shelf or
tv/video cabinet.also not on carpet, make sure all the vents are not blocked, i found for me the coolest position to run the ps3 is on its side away from other heat sources like plasma tv,video/dvd/sat/cable players.
