Dometic Refrig RM8501 with DOOR SAG

Hello Dometic Refrigerator Experts.

I have a basic Dometic Refrigerator, Modell RM8501 (pictured below). It is four years old.

The door swings on upper & lower pin & socket type 'hinges'. The upper hinge has loosened up, so now the door sags and must be lifted up to close smoothly.

I'm sure the socket can be repositioned and tightened up.....somehow.....but I'm not sure how to get to it. It will require removing the top plastic cover (that also houses the controls) but I don't know where to start. There are no visible screws anywhere...

Any thoughts? Thank you in advance.............
