Default Noisy bearing

I just purchased myself 3 120 mm gentle typhoons,
One has a noisy bearing,
I could take back to the shop but I thought its a simple fix to drop a little 3 in 1 oil,
After oiling there noise from bearing is still there,
I removed the c clip and striped fan to check the bearing and found the one that's faulty,
After oiling again and inspecting it did little to fix the problem,
My question is can I buy replacement bearing because ive voided the warranty by removing the back sticker ?
A pack of 10 bearing would be great but I do not know if you can purchase them.

Hello freeleacher,

I'm sorry, but it isn't possible to buy only the bearings of the Gentle Typhoon fans ....

Ok thx for your fast reply.
May I ask you another question.

Is removing the sticker on the back and stripping the fan voiding the warranty ?
Its bran new and was noisy as soon as I powered it up.

Do you have the sticker, so you can add the sticker if you send back the fan ? Do you have the invoice of the fan ?
In the first step is your seller the first contact person for warranty.

Well only way is to remove the sticker from one of the good fans but invalidating that one aswell.
The original stickers no good it got 4 in 1 oil on it and its no longer sticky lol,
But I can make it look like it hasn't been touched, but in doing so invalidating another.

The problem is, that we need the sticker for warranty (at the sticker is a number and this number is important). If the sticker doesn't stick is this no problem - it is enough to add the sticker if you send back the fan to your seller.

When do you have purchased the fan(s)?

Try in the first to contact the seller of the fans. If he don't like to help please contact me again.
