    yes. Read your manual.

    Basic operation: it'll hold your brakes down after you are done holding them down.

    Yes, but there's nothing to find. It's always on....or ready to be on I suppose is a better way to phrase that.

    Clutch in, and brake. When the car is stopped Hill Assist is on. If you let off the brake the car should not move.

    ...if you're in gear. The assist doesn't work if you're in neutral.

    True. I made the assumption that nobody would sit at a stoplight with the clutch pedal in, but not in gear and in neutral. That would be .

    Also - it only holds the car for a moment, and then it releases. If you handle it properly it is an easy to live with assist, but if you over rely on it you could find yourself suddenly rolling back when it lets go. I've driven many a stick and stopped on many a hill without this sort of assist and it is a good way of knowing how to handle your transmission (where does the clutch engage, how much gas do I need to feed it, etc.), but people have often cheated in the past by using their e-brake, and the assist is the same theory, just automated.
