Replace it. you will probably also need fresh thermal paste for the heatsink since removing the fan will probably dislodge the heatsink from the CPU.

Often the cooling fan can just be unscrewed from the heart-sink without disturbing the heat-sink at all. There should be a screw at either corner of the fan.

Just make sure you replace the fan the right way round so that it is blowing air onto the heat-sink.
