Trying to disassemble (and also to reassemble) a power supply from a Macintosh IIci is really a nightmare.
It's really not designed to be fixed.
The whole story can be read here:
But screws didn't hold, sheets didn't fit anymore, a plug from the fan can be reconnected only BEFORE fixing the metal case for the AC plug a.s.o. - for me it was a real bad expirience. Never again (but for now, I fixed it).
