There are way too many oil line recall threads. They all need to be merged.

They shouldn't have gotten anywhere near the windshield.
Front clam removal -- brackets for top rear bolts must be carefully guided to miss the windshield when replacing the clam. Potential for disaster worried me enough that I taped cardboard to the windshield for clam replacement after DIY radiator replacement. (my help -- wife and neighbor lady -- were very unskilled and not that coordinated )

There also is the possibility of a mechanic getting careless using a ratchet on the allen head screws that attach the front covers and hitting the windshield.
