Is most definately to be a loose connection on the bulb in the insrument panel. It really easy to do:

Reach up behind the instument panel and disconnect the speedo cable (just turn it a quarter turn).

Unscrew the screws holding the top of the panel to the dashboard, disconnect the multi connection clips at the back and pull the whole panel out.

Undue the numerous larger screws of the panel and your in. Just clean the connection using wd-40. Should do the trick.

p.s you need to take the steering whell off to do this.
