DCT Gear shift with no power

Not sure if this is common knowledge. Found myself on the side of the highway with no power (dead alternator and battery). Tow truck driver needed the car in Neutral to get it on the flatbed, but with no power, no way to shift out of Park.

Pull up the gear shift boot cover. On the left will be a white ficture thing with a spot to insert a screwdriver (pen may fit, but isn't strong enough). Once you have the screwdriver inserted, pull backwards with moderate force and it will release the transmission brake. Leave the screwdriver sticking out until you regain power.
