The fan wont just simply 'fall out' if you undo all the screws, shroud is in the way and i cant get it off cuz i dont want to break it completely
you already have the new fan and you are ready to buy a new cooler on ebay so at least you could try at the risk of breaking it.
:until its not breaked or fixed you havent tried hard enough.
