        Thanks Paul Koerner for your video. You are a superb Corvette Master Tech. We look forward to your future C8 videos.

          Thanks for the informative video. Let's hope you won't have to use any of those tools anytime soon and they collect dust in your toolbox.

            Shipping C8 tools to dealers is another good step.
            Looking forward to our ME arriving.

                The manual park release adapter seems to confirm my suspicion that if the battery dies, you aren't even going to be able to push the car. Tow truck and dolly time, because with the tranny in park you can't even drag it up onto a flatbed. If the starter starts turning slow, better replace that battery ASAP.

                  I saw that, too and remembered our concerns on earlier threads. Their “special tool” is not something that tow trucks will likely carry. Perhaps owners should carry one, IF they can get it and know where and how to use it ... not for everyone.

                    Given a jump juice with external power, Electronic E-brake should disengage.


                    Give a man a big enough hammer and he can fix anything...don' forget the baling wire and pliers .

                      This brings back nightmare memories of our 3 week old Z51 in 2015 ( Battery with dead cell, manufacturing defect). Car could not be put in drive. Took tow truck driver over an hour to get car on flatbed.
                      My question: Am I correct to assume that only the rear wheels need to be put on rollers/dolly to drag the car onto a flatbed ? (If no DT52388 is available and an external power jump juice fails) .

                        Yes, I think only the rear wheels would need to be put on dollies.

                          Bringing up the fact that the emergency/parking brake calipers are electric too.

                              It just occurred to me that if I bought the kit I could loan it to my local dealer if I ever needed to get fixed. $1700 U.S. would be a little over C$2k. Might be worthwhile even if it's "JIC" ("Just In Case" I wanted to add another acronym lol)
