How can I check the underneath of a fan in a laptop cooler pad?

I have used this laptop fan cooler pad for almost two years: Cooler Master NotePal X-Slim Ultra-Slim Laptop Cooling Pad with 160mm Fan (R9-NBC-XSLI-GP) https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B005C31HC0?

Since a month ago, the fan has stopped rotating.

I have opened up its external screen, see the picture in the first link at the end of the post. I don't find any visible tear and worn with the usb power chord exposed outside.

I want to check what's underneath the fan, but do I need to remove the fan?

How can I remove the fan? The screw-like things under the fan aren't actually screws that my screwdrivers can fit into, see the pictures in the second and third links at the end of the post. I also tried to pull the fan out directly, but it didn't detach and I was afraid of breaking anything and gave up.

I would appreciate your help. Thanks!
