Dreaded Tight Hinge
#1
Unfortunately, my Pinebook Pro has suffered from the failure of the mount that fastens the hing to the base.    I believe it may be because of tightening of the hinge on the USB-C side of the machine.

I know I need to order  a new top shell to repair the machine.   However, I'm worried that if the hinge is too tight, that the same failure will occur again prematurely. 

Should I consider trying to replace the hinges on the display too?   I'm not even sure that the hinges can be  obtained without purchasing a whole display ( which is probably impossible to get at the moment ).

Any advice or experience anyone has with repairing this problem would be appreciated.
