You have to push down real hard with your knee on the front side of the back seat and at the same time with your hands, push the seat back towards the trunk..You have to do the same thing on the other side.(two wire locks one on drivers side and one on passanger side).
Hope you understand this???

I locked both keys in my trunck any idea how i can get them out ?

Is you car unlocked ... if it is you may be able to go through the back seat. If you remove the bottom part of the seat it should expose bolts to the back rest section of the seat. Once that is off there may be a divider of cardboard .... look for fasteners and remove that. Get your keys and put it all back together. Does the car have a trunk release in the glove compartment or other location? If the car is locked then you may have to call a locksmith.

Locked both keys in my trunk how do i get into the trrunk

Remove the back seat. Bottom comes out by pushing back on the seat and lifting.

Top comes off with bolts removed.

Small area on the drivers side (employ a child) to crawl through, of fish for them with a wire clothes hanger.

If you have a trunk release button, you can power it from the battrey and it should pop the trunk.

you have to to push against the bottom half of the seat towards the back of the car, theres a clip that holds the bar in place and then they just pull out. The top half of the seats have to be unbolted
