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.
I can attest to that. Centering the steering wheel on my dune buggy build I cracked the windshield with a ratchet. I was so pissed! Things can happen even when being careful.
