I'm a little confused by this statement because the first photo, with
the footpeg
in view, makes it look like the part with the thread that sticks out was pulled
apart from the bolt.  The extra thread is on the same side as the top of the
footpeg if you were to straighten the hinge.

Unless I'm looking at it wrong, of course.
