Unfortunately the lever to lower the seats is located in the trunk on this vehicle. You will need to get the trunk open in order to pull the lever to lower the seat down. If you are unable to get the trunk open with your key I would recommend enlisting in the assistance of a qualified professional, such as one from YourMechanic, to diagnose the issue and help you get the trunk open.
