Aux Cooling Fans

Hi, one of the fan blades on one of the electric cooling fans has broken off. I understand that you cannot obtain the plastic blades separately. I will have to obtain both of the fans as a complete unit. The problem with a broken blade is the vibration.

Does anybody know whether snapping off the opposite blade will balance the fan??

If you cannot buy the fan separately and you cannot find one in a junk yard, used, then try it. You have nothing to loose.

After breaking it off maybe there is a way to try measuring the balance of the fan.
