How long will a spider, trapped in a car, take to die?

There is a spider trapped in my car somewhere. I saw it once, it was fairly small with a thick body, but at the time I was in a rush and left it alone. Now it has disappeared, and the only mark of its presence are the webs it keeps spinning over the steering wheel and dashboard. Its not particularly fun to get covered in cobwebs each morning but I don't think I can track the little blighter down. I'm assuming its likelihood of finding food is pretty low inside my car, so how much longer will I have to put up with cobwebs in my hair? I'm afraid I can't tell you what exact breed of spider, but I am in the UK
