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.

How can i install another automatic transmision fluid cooler to a 2006 mini cooper s

air transmission oil coolers lower oil temp by over 60%( more it the ambient temp is low) so yes they are the way to go
what is suggested is that you go to an accredited transmission specialist shop and get a kit made for mini cars and see how to fit it properly
They are not cheap( up to $500.00 aud ) but will ,save in transmission costs over time

2007 mini cooper s running hot in traffic

The heater core had air in it and so did the upper hose. I think when they add coolant to our MINI's the system they use pumps air in. They need to bleed it out. Had mine fixed yesterday.

Mini cooper thermostat

If you are sure the cooling system is full, then yes I would look at the thermostat and the water pump. Or a blockage in the system somewhere.
I would start with replacing the thermostat.

Where is the power steering pump and fan located on a 2003 Mini Cooper? Is this something that I should have a professional install, or easy to do myself?

the power steering pump is located at rear engine under the exhaust manifold and the fan is fitted under the pump, the fan is easy to replace but the pump is a bit hard if you never done before.

Radiator cap

There is not a radiator cap on mini coopers it is a closed radiator. The coolant expansion tank is in the back of the engine compartment twards the middle. The fill for the coolant is just on the drivers side of the engine block between the engine and the battery box/ engine air filter.
