I know I am too late but I just changed the fan in my U205-S5002. I couldn't find instructions anywhere so I decided to give it a try. It is very easy.
First remove all the screws below the laptop. There is only one small cover below the laptop. Remove the cover and disconect the Hard Drive. Now remove the plastic strip right above the keyboard by using a flat small screwdriver. Do not be afraid, you'll not break it. After removing the strip you will see 2 S3 screws. Remove them and the keyboard will be free to move. In order to remove the keyboard you'll have to disconnect a couple of connectors, by lightly pulling first the plastic stoppers (colored brown) out. After you have removed the keyboard you will see the fan in the upper left corner. Remove the 2 screws holding the fan and disconnect the connector (pay attention to the way the plug or the female goes in: the holes are on top). Installing the new fan is a piece of cake and so is putting everything back.
I hope this helps.

Hi There.

Just below is the premier site for Toshiba Laptop Disassembly (Toshiba does not make manuals available to consumers).

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/

There you will find your laptop's (or one so similar it will do) instructions with high resolutions photography for each step.

You should look for your replacement fan on ebay, using your Laptop Model# for the search.

Regards,

Selk

Fan issue


Here is a disassembly guide for your laptop:

Not every screw is required to be removed to take out the keyboard but to replace a fan you most likely will have to since the machine needs to be entirely opened up.
