Try over at http://www.redwoodempiremini.com/ - - I found a pdf copy of the owners manual but it was not for the convertible.

Pull out pins, spring return discrete location, slam action. Honestly have used them once and they can be opened either, neither and/or both. to be honest have used them only once and it was entirely intuitive~ there is no secret here but all is in an insulative vibration canceling tightness. pull-out pins are no secret to find- there really isn't "a trunk" rather a boot, and it has a flimsy security liner that fits one way and pops out very easily, as a matter of fact you really can't get to the pins but from over the top of the backseat, so must have a different model than a 2006 coupe-

seeing as your handle is mini_s, one has to assume that you're driving a cooper_S...lucky you, slightly different creature, but I'm certain this description fits-

maybe if you duck under the rear hatch, pull out the security liner (both tethers) and the slide out detent pins you could get to the back seat back release, except they flip forward...so best leave the security liner in place, and release them from reachin over the tops of the backseat.

You know today I found out that I was completely full of crap! the rear seats can be put forward with just a conventional handle to open, the mechanism knifing it's way in to latch- maybe in an altered state there were pins...to be honest, don't know what I was thinking at the time~
