    There's a spider living in my driver's side mirror that is driving me
    nuts. Does anybody have any ideas of how to get rid of it? I am fed up
    of brushing the web off each time I use the car.

    Anybody suggesting I install a bird had better bear in mind there
    isn't room for the cat, dog goat etc. :-(

    Give it a good blast with insect killer spray, via the gap at the edge.
    When itsy-bitsy comes scurrying out, kill him.

    Take the mirror out
    It is, after all, an Italian car - the above (1st) rule shall apply.

    Or you could try a vacuum cleaner........

  7. I had a spider living behind my 306's passenger-side mirror a few weeks
    ago; had webby geometric handiwork reappearing every couple of days.

    I think a good car wash may have evicted it for good. ;-)

    Learn to live with it, it'll keep the flys down.
    I'm always sad to see the back of my wing mirror spider.

    I wonder if this is some whole new breed of spider, the wing-mirror spider?

  10. got one in my 406,zapped the cavity with fly spray
    and had it no more, for about a week! then another
    one arrived! mind I live on a farm and the
    buildings are covered in webs.
    Now I don't bother,I just place the high jet spray
    in the mirrors when I wash the car.
    Like to think of them hanging on for dear life!

    Thanks for all the sugestions folks. The high pressure wash is a non
    starter cos the car is parked away from a power supply :-(

    I'll give it a squirt with insecticide and see if incy wincy dies..
    knowing my luck she'll leave her house to her sisters in her will :-(
