The individual fans are not replaceable.  Usually when one fan goes, the 
others aren't too far behind, so it's not a bad idea to replace the entire 
tray.  It beats having an outage because of the supervisor going into 
thermal shutdown mode :-)

Also, if you have a Sup 720, make sure you get a Fan Tray 2 to replace the 
old unit.
