I hate spiders.

How the hell did this happen? Noticed it while cleaning my car today.




It's dead. Is there an easy way to remove this?

I noticed a small fly inside my nearly new LCI tails! WTF!

To answer your question, the headlights are vented to the atmosphere so he likely climbed in the vent tube.

I didn't think the tails were vented though...

I'd pull the bulb for the angel eyes and use a vacuum hose to try and suck it out, provided you can plug the vent tube.

This, plus maybe get a straw and make an attachment to the vacuum with some tape.

Makes you wonder about how many live spiders you are toting around in your car everywhere you go.

It will only take 10 years. Those things never dust away. I think I have dead spiders in my garage from the 50s.
