I had to tighten the lower hinge on mine, unfortunately, I did not have any new safety nuts, and reused the old ones, now I have to do the entire process one more time, as after 6 months, the same nuts have again loosened up.
I don’t think you have to remove the table; the fabric panel is secured with a BUNCH of small Phillips head brass screws. Removing the trim piece below the windows is not much of a challenge, but it does take time. After removing the fabric panel, I was able to lift the aluminum trim enough to tighten the nuts without drilling the rivets or permanently deforming the aluminum. This is a two person job, as you can’t tighten the nuts (you need a 3/8” “floppy” drive to get to them), and hold a backup on the outside at the same time.
Don’t forget the new safety nuts. I think I will try to find the elliptical safety nuts that are used on airplanes when I redo mine. Definitely don’t want to do it a third time.
