When you say Squirrel I assume you mean fury animal with bushy tail?

I would suggest nuts.  They are rather fond of these.  If you leave a trail leading from the car to the nearest tree that should entice it out!

Try and clean out the part of the car where it has decided to nest i.e. remove all food and bedding from vehicle.
