Entry door bolts

How large a hole do I need to drill in the aluminum wall on the inside of trailer to access the nuts that hold the door hinges. Mine need tightened.

On my trailer they are behind the door trim molding. The size of the hole depends on how accurately you can place it as well as the size of the nut. I think I'd just locate the 4 holes as accurately as possible and then drill them so the edge would be just under the molding, i.e. as big as possible without showing.

Dealer fixed mine for $150 while I was in having a panel replaced.

Be careful - the nuts are not secured in any way. If you drop one, it will be in the wall forever. A nut plate would have cost what, $0.75?
