Is this a stripped display assembly hinge press fit? Suggested hacks?

My MacBook Pro has a fully loose display hinge. After taking it apart, I believe what happened is that the holes where the hinges are press fit into the display assembly have been stripped but I’m not 100% sure since I don’t have an example on hand of what the press fit points are supposed to be like so I’d appreciate a knowledgeable second look. Both the left and right hinges easily fell out of the display assembly. There’s dark gray substance that seems like graphite on the push fit pin and flakes of it are spilling out of the push fit hole. I don’t know why a lubricant would be here though. Maybe it’s ground up aluminum?

This is the most closely related existing thread I could find:

The hinges snapped. Is there anyway to replace the hinges?

From searching online, my understanding is that there aren’t any removable pieces on the display so the only full fix would be a replacement display. Considering the age of the laptop and the cost of a replacement display, I don’t think it would make financial sense to go that route. Are there any recommendations for a hack repair? The obvious option is to try glueing the hinges in place. Any strong opinions for how to prep the surfaces or what adhesive to use?

Sadly yes Apple on the first series 2016/17 did use a press fit pin design, later the went into a key way design which prevented this issue as the display won’t stay at the angle you wish.

Apple did have a extended service offering for this issue but I think that’s expired at this point. The only option from Apple would be replacement of the display assembly which is quite expensive.

I have been successful using cyanoacrylate glue to hold things. After fully cleaning the pin and hole of any junk and greases use a toothpick to wipe the inner hole and quickly press the pin in making sure you get it in fully.

I glued the hinges in place and the results are good.
