Frameless shower door installation

When installing a frameless shower door, do the hinges need to go through a stud or can I just put them through the tile and 1/2 inch cememt board. the reason I ask is that the existing plastic shower pan does not line up with the wall studs. Thanks.

It is advisable that they should anchor into a stud. There is no holding power by attaching it to the tile.

Best to try and insert a stud from the other side of the wall if possible.

Good Luck!
