How can I fix my Laptop Screen from wobbling?

The Black hinge cover is damaged and when i touch my screen to move it to a different position it wobbles back to the original.

It is not under warranty and I'm looking to do it myself if possible.

Is this a good question?

Go through this guide and look especially at step #13. MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Mid 2012 Display Replacement

There are 3 screws on each hinge that you need to check and possibly tighten.

Thank you I'll try it out. I start from the beginning i presume?

No, just open it up and go straight to the screws. Be careful that the screen is aligned before you lock it place. Do one screw at at time, then check it. Check to see if any are loose, do one on the right then one one the left checking to see if it closes correctly. The first two you tighten will probably lock it down.
