Laguna II climate control flickers

My climate control illuniation has always flickered - that is gets brighter and then darkens slightly. Always more noticable in the dark but always linked to when the car is cool.

Syptoms are typically worse when the dash illuminations are turned down. If I pull up say at lights, the revs dip slightly as I dip the clutch and the dash lights/climate display flicks brighter then dark again. Hardly notice when illumination turned up full.

Sure wish I'd had this looked at when under warranty but it more of a niggle than a real issue.

Funnily enough I did have courtesy light checked under warranty some years back, as it used to flicker when engine on. Renault tried a repalcement unit but it was the same and I guess I was left to accept it was "normal" - didn't flicker when engine off. Nor did reading lights ever suffer in either scenario.
