Print Blower Fan Wire Protection?

Ok, I have searched and cannot find this.  I have had to replace a number of blower print cooling fans.  The issue is when I have to disassemble a few times, the solder breaks where the wire meets the fan PCB / Motor.  Except for being more careful, I have not found the perfect way to protect this wiring.  What are you doing?

Don't know if it works for this particular case, but I've just added glue gun glue on solder joints before to protect them from repeated bending stress.

I've also used hot glue as strain relief but never use over the actual joints.  Add it to the wires themselves to stop movement but if you add it to the solder joints its very very messy when you need to re-do a joint

I usually just toss them then the joint breaks.  Not worth the time of soldering.

I always cover this area with a piece of high-quality textile tape and first lubricate the ball bearing with a drop of sewing machine oil.

like this one: universal-textil-tape
