    • The left hinge is labeled with an "L" within the inside corner. The left hinge is smaller and the hinge bracket is more of a horizontal shape

    • The right hinge is labeled with an "R" within the inside corner . The right hinge is larger and the hinge bracket is more of a horizontal and vertical shape.

    • When inserting each hinge, look for 2 black plastic clips attached to both sides of the LCD assembly. These 2 black plastic clips will fit into the hinge arms. Notice in the video I press down on each hinge clip where the black plastic clips are located.
