You will find covers protecting your laptop, start by removing them carefully by a suitable screwdriver, lift the cover off the fan, and then the fan inside will be revealed.
Try to check the damage and conditions of the fan, if you just need to change the blades or you have to swap the whole fan from there.
Take a can of compressed air and try to make the fan dust free completely. Remove all the dust from inside and outside of the fan.
With the help of a suitable screwdriver try to remove the case cover of the fan and keep the cover of the fan by side. Then, remove the broken blades of the fan; if you come to find any broken piece of the blade inside the fan then remove it carefully.
Replace the old blades with new blades and make sure that it fits perfectly into the fan case. The easiest and perfect option here is to buy a suitable brand.
