Very useful information. Hope I never have to use it (because it might mean I'm being towed) but important to know.

So in my case, you twist off the white plastic cap (clockwise), then twist the metal drive counterclockwise. In my case a spring came out. Turning the metal screw counterclockwise puts the car in neutral.

Holy cow; I'm glad I just have to pull a short, mechanical lever!

This was a lifesaver. Thank you. FYI a screwdriver may not even be necessary, I was able to pop off the trim around the dct lever with just my fingers.

Oh and my battery was stone cold dead, I think this is purely a mechanical thing.

The transmission will shift into neutral with engine running. That's how to run it through the car wash. If you shut off engine but leave the remote control in the ignition, the transmission will remain in neutral.

Simple isn't it?

my car goes into park every time if you try it like that. only way it worked for me with the car off is popping up the trim and turning the allen

If you put the car in neutral while it's own, turn the car off it should still be in neutral. Only time it will jump out of neutral and into park is if you turn the car off while in neutral, get out close the door behind you, and then try to open the door again it jumps back when you open the door to get back in.

I just asked my SA about this and he said the car can be put into N without starting, just power on without starting and shift to N is what he said. As my car has to be towed today to the dealer.

Edit-DK why he told me that, verified its not true unless you use the hex key and follow that process. Maybe its true on a Auto?
