Help! Over Heating.

Can Anyone Point Me In The Right Direction To Where The Electric Fan Relay Is On My 2002 Mini Cooper S As Mine Does Not Come On When In Traffic And Like Yesterday It Does Not Take Long For My Cooper S To Look Like A Huge Kettle When It Boils Over.
Or Has Any One Had This Problem Before? And Maybe Advise Me Whats Wrong. As Always With Electrical Faults I Always Start With Checking The Relay.
Thanks In Advance. Looks Like I Will Have To Carry On Driving My Ever Reliable 1971 Mini Cooper Until I Find A Quik Fix.

It should be somewhere on the radiator surely? I can check on mine tonight.

It's the power steering fan most likely if your's is an older MINI. The power steering and coolling fans are on the same circuit ( It's a 5 amp under the hood ) when the power steering fan gets clogged up and blows it's fuse, the engine overheats because the radiator fan is also blown there's a campaign at MINI to put these two things on separate circuits. Call Mini Usa for detaiils. Or MINI-whereveryouareintheworld
