Bezel and hinge broken- Need help replacing.

My laptop was dropped over a year ago and the bezel cracked. It's not been too much of an issue, but more recently the hinge has started to stick and at worst, has resulted in the bezel nearly separating from the screen. The crack in the bezel also means the thin piece of plastic on the side sometimes separates and altogether, the entire screen nearly falls apart if not held together with tape. (very temporary solution)

I will be clear in that I'm someone who knows next to nothing about tech repair, but I do have the help of someone who does, but hasn't done this exact thing before.

I have purchased replacement parts, but I cannot find a good and clear guide on how to replace the front bezel and hinge. Pictures of the damage below.

@samgeorge77840 iFixit does not yet have a guide for this. Try something like this video It is actually one of the better ones to follow.

While you work on your laptop, take lots of pictures. Once you are done with it, take those pictures and create a guide for iFixit. That will help the next person that has the same problem as you do. It's easy and fun to create these guides. The iFixit community will appreciate this.
