When Changing the clutch hinges do I need Loctite on the screws?

When I open the MBP, the lcd opens fine, but if its on an angle it just flops all the way back, so I was going to replace the hinges. I just figured the hinges were worn out, so I wanted to know should I put loctite on the screws?

Yes - there's an adhesive used in the original assembly - sometimes you can see it on the threads after you remove the screws.
