I'm not an owner of your model, but in looking over links you have provided, I believe the picture shown in the eBay sale is incorrect. The hinges pictured in UK PC Parts link would be the correct ones when compared to Page #90 of the diagram shown in your model's Hardware Maintenance Manual and the pictures shown in the additional eBay search I did. Here are the results...
Hardware Maintenance Manual:
If you are still interested in the hinges offered by that eBay seller you might want to send them a message and have them verify that the picture is correct for what they are selling.

I've included an additional link to a Lenovo Training Video for your model. You may find the videos along with my previous link to the Hardware Maintenance Manual useful for your repair. The video for the LCD disassembly also shows the hinge is the same style as shown in the manual.

thank you very much but question. i was concerned because i didnt know if the same hinge on the u310 could work for the u310 touch but in the maintenance manual it seems like they have the same hinges. what do you think?

The Hardware Maintenance Manual is for both the U310 and U310 Touch and it is only showing the one hinge. I would think the only difference between those two models would be the LCD. The rest of the lid and hinge assembly would be the same.
