I have the Corsair Cooling Air Series A70 HIGH-PERFORMANCE DUAL-FAN CPU Cooler.
I am replacing the dual fans. The fans attach to a plastic frame that then clips onto the side of the CPU cooler itself.
The fans are attached to the frame by 4 rubber “grommets” I want to say. The grommet extends from the frames and goes through both holes on the corners of the fan
While removing the old fans from the frames I tore off a couple of those rubber grommets.
Any ideas how to attach the dang fans now?
Thanks

You got two, that is enough really. Just pull them through.

Another common method is just metal wire bent into shape. You could do something similar with some light paperclips and some patience.

See Noctua, Xigmatek, Scythe, etc CPU coolers for the rough idea.

Rubber bands, zip ties.

Or you can just order new rubber grommet thingies (They are just called silicone fan mounts, apparently, learn something useless everyday (I've even used them!))
