I'll go have another go at it right now, I do appreciate the help, because without you guys I'd be lost for sure!
Mixed feelings on this, i was able to get the seat to come up part way, found the release, pulled it, heard the action work.
Went to the back hatch, it had popped out a bit however still can not open it. no matter what i try it remains looked but FIRMLY latched.
This is quite a fail on mini (just IMO), I'd much rather have an actual handle on the back than an electronic switch to open it, plus a keyhole to lock/unlock it.
