Delta Electronics cooling fan (Model: BFB0605LB)The cooling fan was next on my list of components to remove. The Apple TV's Delta Electronics cooling fan (Model: BFB0605LB) is held in place by three rubber posts and a piece of yellow tape. You do not actually need to disconnect and remove the cooling fan to remove the main PCB from the case, but I wanted to see what was under the fan.
