a premise:

the correct procedure to remove the hinge cover without breaking the little teeth is to carefully slide it to the left (so the teeth get free/unlocked) and then pull it away.

So, to install a new hinge cover, you have to first align it to the left and push it in, then slide it to the right.

Hope it helps :-).

should the laptop be opened or closed when replacing? Also, which portion is considered the top?


The laptop must be opened.

Top is the display, bottom is the keyboard :-).
