Tightening HP Pavilion DV9000 17" LCD Hinges

hi, everyone

as you may already know, i got this HP Pavilion DV9000 LCD hinges at

http://www.laptopbattery-usa.com/hp-pavilion-dv9000-lcd-hinges-for-hp-dv9000-17-lcd-series-p-1092.html

and i want to fix it up.

the lcd swivel hinge is quite good and doesn't wobble at all

the open and close part of the hinge is tight enough that the lid will stay open and not close on itself, but it is rather wobbly and floppy. there is a high degree of bend before you actually feel the resistance of the hinge

my question is:

is there a tutorial somewhere or does someone know how to tighten this hinge?
