Hi,

The hinge mount point on the palm rest assembly were broken. The palm rest assembly has been replaced. The hinges are tight little bit from very beginning. This laptop while opening the lid, it takes bit more pressure than usual on the palm rest to open the lid.
To prevent any damage on the hinge mount point again, is it ok to loosen the hinges a bit?

Well I loosened the hinge tension a bit. The screw attaching the hinge on the palm rest are firm and secure. There is no play on the screen after assembling. Now it doesn't require "that" much force to open/close the lid.
