Clio Instrument failure

Hi All

I'm posting on behalf of the wifes Grandfather
His Clio 1.2 on a 51 plate has had problems with the instruments on the dash panel packing up!
His local garage can sort it by wiggeling the plug from the loom to the dash but it fails again after a few days (& only a few miles) usually on the next shopping trip
Its been to the local dealer who quoted 500 to replace the dash panel! WTF!!!!!
To me it sounds like a dry joint or a cracked track on the pcb?
Is this common?
Has anyone else had the sameor similar problems?
Currently in SANDMAN's garage:
Clio 1.2, Pug 406 HDI est, Discovery 300Tdi, Beetle 1300
