Did you look under your dash below the steering wheel? Thats where its located.

The parking brake release tool is in the trunk tool kit - it's a long, thin metal rod at the top of the trunk toolbox thing.
Right in front of the spare tire there is a hole you stick it in and turn it until there is resistance (you're sticking it into the parking brake actuator by doing this).

Did you ever find out where you could get the emergency release tool from? Could you get it from the dealer? If so, how much was it?
