Should I replace the rear display bezel, clutch hinge, or both?
My Macbook was dropped and continues to function. However, the right side of the display is now only tenuously connected to the hinge. This causes a lot of pressure on the rear bezel/hinge hardware and is getting worse and worse and separating more and more. It's almost as if the right side is merely hanging on.
The hinge seems to function fine, aside from this. So I'm not sure I have to replace the hinge. The problem seems to lie entirely with the right clutch hinge. It's broken on its far left side so part of it is connected to the hinge which rest of it is connected to the display. The hole where the clutch hinge screws into the rear display bezel is apparently. (I can see this very well since the front bezel has been cracked for years and peels away to reveal the damage)
So here's the question: Do I replace the right clutch hinge? Do I also replace the rear bezel display? Is there a quick "good enough" fix that you can see here. I don't want to put too much money (or time) into machine that I will replace before the year's out. Would it be advisable to try use an epoxy or something of the sort to connect the broken parts of the clutch hinge (and the rear display bezel)?
Here are some pics:
Is this a good question?
