It goes in the return line, the one which has hose clamps on each end.

Welcome to Allpar. There is a mesh screen in the reservoir to capture larger debris. Replace the reservoir if the screen becomes restricted.
If there is debris in the P/S fluid, you need to find out what is coming apart (rubber or metal?). A complete P/S flush should clear the system. If it is still getting dirty after that, you need to find out why.
What year? The correct fluid type is also important. http://www.wjjeeps.com/tsb/tsb_wj_1900503.pdf

hi
thanx for the replies,,its a 2001 2.0l touring
i only bought it about a month ago,,i've liked them ever since they came out.
payed £450 for it with 3 months mot.
it was draining the battery when i got it but i just rerouted the wires for the fog lights onto a switch,,good as gold now.
i took the reservoir off and cleaned it out as it was a sludge in the bottom and the steering was whining,,since the clean,
its nice and quiet but i thought rather than having to keep cleaning it i would put a an inline filter in instead.
there's 2 pipes,,1 at the bottom of the reservoir (small pipe) and 1 half way up (large pipe).

Am improved multifunction (column) switch was released in 2005 for a 'foglamps staying on' issue.
Keep an eye on the fluid condition. If it darkens again flush the P/S system with the correct fluid (meeting the Chrysler MS spec) and I would suggest replacing the reservoir assembly as well.

I always like to learn the price of the part I am trying to protect. Sometimes I fairly run to the parts store with extreme enthusiam to buy the protection part.
