Replace the CPU fan of a compaq 2510p

caisys2 used Ask the Experts™
Hi, my 3 years old compaq 2510p continuously makes a loud noise coming from the fan I purchased a spare fan from ebay and  I tried to dismantle the laptop, it turned out the fan is buried really deep and I couldn't reach. I managed to remove the keyboard and drives but then was stuck with the wires coming from the screen to the motherboard.

Is there a service manual that shows the steps for replacing the fan for this notebook model?
