I want to file a Motion to Redact but the case is closed, must I reopen the case and pay the reopening fee?

Answer: 

No, reopening a closed case is not required, and so a reopening fee is not due.  In accordance with the Bankruptcy Court Miscellaneous Fee Schedule (see Item 11), in the event it becomes necessary to reopen a case solely to redact information pursuant to Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 9037, a reopening fee is not charged.  A fee for filing the Motion to Redact still applies.
