    This is pure Toyota BS, as a line worker who installs the brake pedal as well as the switch I can tell you first hand that this is a lie, there is no grease contact with the switch at all this is a lie to cover up the truth which is that the main problem with the switch is that it and the brake pedal assembly are very poorly designed.
    The switch is placed into a retainer on the brake pedal assy then it is pushed down and twisted to lock in place, however if the switch is pushed down too far the brake lights won`t come on and if it is not pushed far enough then the brake lights stay on, it`s that simple, the problem is that Toyota runs the line so fast it is hard to judge if the switch is depressed correctly.Nothing to do with grease!
