This ended up being very easy - took me 20 minutes (my first repair). With my experience, the expoxy / glues you have to pry off turn out to not be that stuck on in the first place, and actually easily re-adhere after installing the new fan.
Btw iFixit saved me from the "minimum three days in the shop" nonsense that seems to be applecare (I'm chained to my laptop). Understand they have to follow procedure, but common sense is if you can hear a fan buzzing it's probably the fan.
Next time I'll be putting that $350 into the iFixit used parts fund :)
