SOURCE: putting water in a mini
From the top of the radiator (which is on the right hand side of the engine) beside the pressure cap there is a small hose pipe which leads to a plastic tank on the bulkhead.
This is called the expansion tank
On the side of the expansion tank is a level mark which shows how much water goes in there
If that is totally empty go back to the pressure cap on the radiator and unscrew it anti -clockwise (Only when the engine is cold and is not running).
Fill that up with cold water (Do you need anti-freeze in the water in your part of the world?)
Once that has been topped up replace the pressure cap making sure it is turned until it locks firmly then go back and fill up the expansion tank
Turn the engine on and let it run a while, water may escape from the expansion tank if you have over filled it.
If there are lots of bubbles and noises from the cooling system have it checked in case you have a leaky head gasket

SOURCE: where is the mini water
It's under the alternator. A real pain in the rear to get out. My daughter has an 03 mini. Can I ask what you are trying to do? I'm actually having a belt squeal problem with her water pump.
