There is an update TSB (Tech Svc. Bulletin) out now that supersedes ST001-06. This new one (TSB 0296-08) addresses injecting 2 tubes of special grease into the intermediate shaft instead of replacing it. From what I've read on different forums or blogs, this easier (and cheaper for Toyota) TSB takes care of the problem. http://www.tundrasolutions.com/forums/attachments/camry/35722d1223145460-need-pdf-st001-06-steering-shaft-t-sb-0296-08.pdf
If you open the trunk there is an access panel just behind the lamp assy. Pull the panel loose (just fabric panel tucked in) and turn the brake light bulb socket 1/4 turn CCW and pull. With socket in hand, pull the bulb straight out and insert new bulb.
Maybe the dashboard dimmer wheel (left of steering wheel on the dash) is turned all the way down. This adjustment wheel has no effect on the brightness of dash during the daytime.
