Advisable to replace the fan before other components have heat 
damage.  Repair is an option too.  If the fan has ball bearings, 
they can be replaced.  Bearing vendors can be found on the Web 
and on eBay.  If the fan has bushings, they can be reconditioned.
Take them out.  Poach them in non-detergent oil for at least 12 
hours to release the wear particles.  Reassemble.  Certainly worth 
the effort.
