Your real worry is if it's laid eggs in there! I've had an infestation of spiders in a dash - it ain't funny.

Yes, as well as those screws in the body you can see in the photo, there are screws all round the outside, so I reckon the back will come off. I'm not going to try it in case something springs out, but it certainly looks like it will come off.
Thanks alismyler, jrkitching thanked for this post

Don't you just love the cold UK sometimes, this HUGE spider ran down the bedroom curtain a few days ago, i don't like spiders, it got caught and evicted out of the window.

Entomology isn't my strong suit but many insects are attracted to light and that might just be why it's at the front of the instrument. If you cover the front of the display it may find it's way out the way it came in.
