Spider making webs inside my Jeep, how do I stop this madness?

The title says it all. I have a spider making webs in my Jeep, and has been for a couple weeks now and I can't take it. It likes to make them in the driver door opening. I haven't seen it, otherwise it would be toast. Any creative ideas on how to stop this?

The problem is, I can't find the damn thing! I've looked everywhere. I've vacuumed everywhere. I like the idea of waiting for winter.

Lol. My spiders live in the mirrors. Buggers scatter and hide behind the mirror glass. I tried the shopvac and flushing them out with water, no luck.
The temps have been dropping here, haven't seen em in a while.

put a couple of scorpions in there, they will find and get rid of the spiders.

Yep. You need to find something that eats or scares spiders. Maybe fill your Jeep with gorillas.

Scorpions are an important part of the Honey Badger's diet...

I had an arachnid infestation in the heep when I lived in Florida. The solution is simple. Park in a garage, leave the windows open, and use double the required bug bombs for the garage. Problem solved.
