Power Steering Fluid Leak

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited
My vehicle has a fluid leak from the metal pipe where it joins a union nut just to left of the Power Steering Reservior. I don't want to attempt tightening the flange nut anymore in case it fractures the pipe.
Does anyone know where I might be able to view a parts diagram of the Power Steering Reservior and it's connections?

Thanks

PS Sorry if this post appears twice, the first post I tried seemed to just get lost.

Re: Power Steering Fluid Leak

Thanks Frango100.

I have been researching this further and found that there is a small metal piece that goes into the Pump Housing called a Quick Connect pressure fitting. (P/N 52088116AB) The High Pressure Hose (P/N 05080950AA) is then connected to this Quick Connect. I am not sure whether there is any replacement parts at the Quick Connect, but I suspect you have to buy both pieces to fix the leak.
Hope this helps others who might have leaks at the same point.
Remember you must use Mopar Power Steering Fluid MS5931 when topping up the fluid. (P/N 04883077)

Mopar redesigned the hose at some point due to leaking. I had the same problem and a new o ring did not solve the problem. They redesigned the fitting that holds the hose to the pump. It's fairly easy to replace, took me less than an hour to do. If you do replace the hose make sure to bleed the system before driving.
