@xps15 download the service manual from here. You will need the back cover (available at places like this) and possibly new hinges.

Although both answers above are very good and proper.

You may want to try a quick fix and glue the hinge to the inside shell with JB weld. It's a cheap fix that may work for you, if it doesn't then go with the new parts: back shell and hinge.
