Installed new hinge kit but discovered the top hinge where it mounts to the body is loose. Click image for larger version

I would have to tear out some of the interior spray on to tighten them

Any ideas on how to tighten them

Boler hinges

Gee, our Boler doesn't have any spray insulation used anywhere. Vinyl coated foam, (Ensolite) glued on, is used. I can access our hinge bolts easily from inside. Obviously you will have to dig out this "spray foam" with a small circular hole saw at low speed to get at those loose hinge bolts! After tightening, grab a couple of plastic furniture "plugs" to leave a nice looking finishing touch! Home Depot items...
