Basicly the right side is blocked by the left side grey big thingy that as I said I just CANT take out. Im sure its possible tho because the paste was once changed by the tech service when my pc was crashing and was under warranty (and my fps got boosted ike + 100% more ) It's a ASUS G60JX with I5 , GTS360M 1GB ....

If it's anything like the G50 (which actually has a service manual), the fan assembly is attached to the CPU heatpipes. You lift the assembly at the CPU end and then pull it away from the rear of the laptop. Some paste can be quite sticky so you may need to wiggle it a bit.
Note that changing thermal paste usually makes little or no difference. The important thing is the dust layer that builds up on the heatsink on the side closest to the fan. Not sure how you get to that in this case. You may need to remove that plate from the top of the fan assembly.

Just try to lift the cooler only, you will notice that that black adhesive band keeps it together with the heat pipes (after you removed the screws), remove the dust from radiator and fan and you are done, there's no need to change the thermal paste unless your laptop is 2 or more years old.
Also since you have no clue how to service a laptop it is better to go to a specialized computer service and stop asking for advice here.
thermal paste on laptops usually is quite old since the model before you bought it was probably laying around for a while as well. If you get a good thermal paste you will notice an improvement at load but unlikel at idle since laptop fans are usually controled by the cpu/gpu temps.
