You should be able to remove the screws to replace the fan. Make sure it isn't just plugged with lint/dust to keep it from spinning

You may find it difficult to replace just the fan. These complete coolers sure look pretty !

If it's held by little plastic pins with springs, you have to get a small pair of needle nose pliers and compress the ends where they come thru the bottom of the video card and pull the pins out carefully.
