Have you tried using parts lookup? Choose "Mechanical Assemblies" on the left under commodity type. Dont post your serial number here but if you put it in parts lookup you will find parts for your laptop. I just looked up Generic u530.
With that part number you can get at Lenovo Encompass store. Please verify part numbers before buying.
The above are for the hinge. For the hinge cover choose "LCD parts" on the left side under commodity type. Below is hinge cover.

The Lenovo u530 should've been recalled and discotinued. There are hundreds of thousands of complaints online about the faulty hinges of the u530. Lenovo was aware of this problem, and still did little to nothing to save people their trouble. This won't stop my from buying from Lenovo, as their customer service is nearly on par with Apple's. Still really upset that the executives of Lenovo didn't halt sales of the doomed u530. I am typing this on a u530 myself, the left hinge is tight and the black plastic cover is buldging out, only a matter of time before my u530 meets the same fate as yours.
