    The fan looks like this: http://www.xsfans.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=619
    Now there's dust right behind the fan that I cannot reach, theres a leaver at the right side, i pulled it and I don't know anything else.
    I've been googling for a while and cannot find an answer, how do I open it so I can clean it?
    Also I have nothing that is able to take a picture but the picture from the web looks exactly like it.
    Thank you guys.

    Aha I figured it out! Anyway its all clean, for people that are in need in the future, all you gotta do is push the pins on the side of the fan, it points upwards.

    Edit: You know how you have a problem and then google it and then they solved the problem AND THEY DON'T TELL YOU? WELL THAT PISSES ME OFF, enjoy the answer future person!
