    I not only get spiders in my cluster, but I see them in and on my truck all the time. They are small yellowish maybe clear. Does anyone else have this also? Why do they love our Taco's?

    nah, nah.... the true story is that the truck came equipped with a spidey sensor, to allow it to have superhuman...errr supermechanical powers. Looks like spidey battery is dead. Needs a new one.

    Replace it and the truck will fire spider webs from the headlights

    Yes it will. I seriously have done this before ona different vehicle. You take the little rubber seal off around the trip reset stick. Get some silly puddy and make a gasket around the end of the hose. Then you put it over the little gap turn on high and boom it will suck them out.

    Those are juvenile black widows. When bitten, an adult human will feel nausea and headachy. Within minutes, the body will suffer complete shutdown of all motor coordination. The brain will fight to stay alive before the immune system eventually implodes (crushes) in upon itself. You need to do something about this.

    I pulled a large black widow out of the intake galley on my Tundra last week. Screamed like a 5 year old girl.

    The gauge cluster is pretty easy to get apart, although I have an older Taco with the manual speedo cable so I've been in there half a dozen times...

    Black widow bites are only dangerous to children and the elderly. And that's from an adult spider.

    Most people will have mild flu like symptoms and then be fine.

    I wouldn't necessarily say that "severe pain in abdomen and back, ... hypertension and paralysis of the diaphragm" are mild flu like symptoms.

    It's definitely true that children and elderly or the very ill are most susceptible, and may not survive, but the bites can be quite bad for normal healthy people too.

    That would be my first attempt. The corpse is probably brittle by now and would come out in pieces.
