HOW TO: Repair or Fix Broken ANY Laptop Hinge AKA THE MAN FIX



Steps:
1. Remove the “screw covers” if any. You may have direct access to the screws, this is fine.
2. Inspect that the metal hinge is still working and strong
3. Verify that the plastic has just broken free from the strong-working-metal-hinge
4. Remove the original Screws and plastic debris if any
5. Align both the left and right metal hinges so they they are both at the same Angles
6. Remove ANY wires out of the way…. near this broken hinge (temporarily)
7. Go to hardware store and buy small set of Screws, WITH WASHERS! You will need the washers for the plastic (back lid) They help sandwich the plastic.
8. With the hinge aligned the way it should be BEFORE it was broken…use a Battery Drill to drill straight through to the back side. Insure that the drill bit is very snug size for the bolts! And batttery drill becase you can control the speed / power!
9. Re-run original wires in place (if any)
10. Insert bolts—tighten until JUST when plastic bends then stop! Use TWO NUTS per screw 😉 Giggity…….this lets you “lock” the tightness “down together” and will keep then from spinning loose during repetitive operation.
11. Enjoy
