United Kingdom
The procedure is pretty much standard on all Minis and is as follows,

Remove dip stick
Remove under tray
Undo sump plug
Catch oil in a container
Undo oil filter housing
Replace cartridge and o ring
Renew or just refit sump plug
Refill with correct grade of oil (usually 5w30- check your spec)
Check level with dip stick
Refit under tray.
