    Dont be so cruel man, its just a spider, leave it alone, its warm & doesnt harm anyone, I vote to leave it in or leave the rear cover of & let it crawl out by itself.

    It's either the vacuum or the heat from the headlamp will fry it :p

    Or leave it there, lay eggs, millions of the wee fookers skittering along inside your head light. They become adjitated, find their way out, make their way to the steering rack, crawl up the steering column, seeking vengence on the driver by biting him to death while driving :eyebrows:

    It will get a nice tan anyway if left there!

    Surely it will die anyway.. Can't see many flys coming his way..

    Though I guess, if he managed to get it he'll be able to get out anyway.

    surely the weight will put the car out of balance as it will be heavier on one side with the weight of that huge spider!!

    The poor little fella's obviously lost... He must've been trying to find your driver's side wing mirror, I always seem to have a colony of arachnids in there...

    I seem to have a family inside my car, found some webs saturday, then again given the weather any where inside would be good for them, either drowned or burnt to a crisp (like me saturday) these days with our ever changing weathers

    I think you misunderstood the advice of the person who said to you... "the web can help when modding your car".

    i dont know if this will help,but looks like there might be a reason what its doing there and where to go next with this problem:

    There was an old woman who swallowed a fly,
    I don't know why she swallowed a fly,
    Perhaps she'll die.


    There was an old woman who swallowed a spider,
    That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her,
    She swallowed the spider to catch the fly,
    I don't know why she swallowed the fly,
    Perhaps she'll die.
    There was an old woman who swallowed a bird,
    How absurd! to swallow a bird,
    She swallowed the bird to catch the spider,
    That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her,
    She swallowed the spider to catch the fly,
    I don't know why she swallowed the fly,
    Perhaps she'll die.
    There was an old woman who swallowed a cat,
    Imagine that! to swallow a cat,
    She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,
    She swallowed the bird to catch the spider,
    That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her,
    She swallowed the spider to catch the fly,
    I don't know why she swallowed the fly,
    Perhaps she'll die.
    There was an old woman who swallowed a dog,
    What a hog! to swallow a dog,
    She swallowed the dog to catch the cat,
    She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,
    She swallowed the bird to catch the spider,
    That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her,
    She swallowed the spider to catch the fly,
    I don't know why she swallowed the fly,
    Perhaps she'll die.
    There was an old woman who swallowed a goat,
    Just opened her throat! to swallow a goat,
    She swallowed the goat to catch the dog,
    She swallowed the dog to catch the cat,
    She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,
    She swallowed the bird to catch the spider,
    That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her,
    She swallowed the spider to catch the fly,
    I don't know why she swallowed the fly,
    Perhaps she'll die.
    There was an old woman who swallowed a cow,
    I don't know how she swallowed a cow!
    She swallowed the cow to catch the goat,
    She swallowed the goat to catch the dog,
    She swallowed the dog to catch the cat,
    She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,
    She swallowed the bird to catch the spider,
    That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her,
    She swallowed the spider to catch the fly,
    I don't know why she swallowed the fly,
    Perhaps she'll die.
    There was an old woman who swallowed a horse,
    She's dead—of course!
