I have a Cisco Catalyst 2900 XL that's making noise and I assume the bearings on one the fans are shot. I've searched for replacement parts and have had no luck. If someone could point me to a vendor that sells the fan components for this specific model it would be greatly appreciated.

I doubt that you'll find a vendor that sells fans advertised as being "for the Cisco 2900XL".

I would open up the case, check the label of the fan for voltage, AC or DC, size, etc. and then google something like "PC fans".

Buy a whole switch replacement on ebay for $100.  Either use it, or the fans.
