Default Asus G74SX fan replacement

Looks like one of my Asus G74SX fans has died. From videos it looks like the fan within the fan housing should be able to be replaced without purchasing a complete fan unit.Or maybe that is incorrect? Can anyone tell me the specifications of the fan itself?
thanks

One fan has shut down. Has anyone replaced themselves? Where did you source the unit and did you replace both? What was the cost? My machine is 8 months old. Thanks

what makes you think the fan failed ?. g74sx is not known for fan failure.

Not to thread-jack butI also need one or both my my fans replaced.

a TERRIBLE noise is coming from the fans, louder than the speakers can compensate for. It's vibrating the whole laptop and seems to progressively be getting louder every day.

I've taken them out and cleaned them, with no change what so ever. I've determined that the cause is more than likely a worn out bearing.

Where might one find such a replacement?
