2011 Mini a/c questions

Bought our son a 2011 Mini Cooper hatch for graduation. We've been unable to find where the refrigerant is leaking, unable to find any signs of the dye. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

I've seen leaks in the condenser that doesn't show any signs of leaks, I've also seen the Schrader valves be the problem as well.
Not saying that is it, but just some of the ones that were not easily found.

We did find a leaking schrader valve, replaced it. But now the system has less than .10lb of R134 and no signs, Condenser? Evaporator? Which one is under the dash? And how hard is it to get to? Thanks

The evaporator on an AC system is in the dash.
