Default Urgent help needed - Keys locked in trunk

Hey guys. I locked my keys in my 2005 S80 trunk. I had AAA come and open the doors, but I was unable to gain access to the trunk through the rear seats because they are locked in place.

My rear center seat has a console/cup holder that folds down, with a gray door which would give me access to the trunk, thus I could reach in and pull the trunk release cable.

My dumb *** wasn't able to open the center console door, an I think it's because I was doing it wrong. I was simply pulling, while I have read that you have to push up, then pull.

If anyone could please confirm this, that'd save me from having to pay a locksmith to open the trunk.

So if you could, go to your back seat center console door (trunk access door) and see if pushing up, then pulling opens the door.

I won't be able to get to my car till morning. If anyone can verify this, then I can simply have AAA unlock my doors again, and I can take it from there.

Better yet, if someone could film a little video on their phone and posting it to YouTube, showing how its opened, that'd be amazing.

From your car's Owners Manual

Carry long loads
The center backrest cushion folds forward, allowing you to transport long, light cargo such as skis in the trunk of your car. To lower the backrest:
Pull the right release control handle in the trunk to release the backrest (see page 58).
From the rear seat, fold down the right section of the backrest slightly*.
Release the flap by pushing the catch (located on the rear side of the backrest) upward and pulling the flap forward.
Return the backrest to the upright position.
* If your car is equipped with the optional integrated child booster cushion, this cushion must be folded down before you fold down the backrest (see page 15).
