Chrysler LHS: How to remove/replace the power steering reservoir

Resolved Question:

How to remove/replace the power steering reservoir on a 1999 chrysler lhs with the 3.5 High Output Engine? (My son was working on the vehicle and somehow broke the "nipple" on the small hose that connects to the reservoir and fluid leaked out of the tank)

REMOVAL
  1. Raise vehicle on jackstands or centered on a frame contact type hoist.
  2. Remove the power steering return hose from the side of the power steering fluid reservoir. Remove the power steering fluid supply hose going to the power steering pump from the bottom of the power steering fluid reservoir. Let power steering fluid drain from hoses and reservoir.
  3. Lower the vehicle.
  4. Remove the power steering fluid reservoir from the mounting bracket by rotating the rear of the reservoir toward the engine and out of the bracket.

INSTALLATION

  1. Install the power steering fluid reservoir into the mounting bracket. Be sure the retaining tab on the bracket is holding the reservoir in the bracket. Fasten screw to 12 Nm (105 inch lbs.) .
  2. Raise vehicle.
  3. Install the power steering return hose onto the nipple on the side of the power steering fluid reservoir. Install the power steering fluid supply hose going to the power steering pump, on the bottom nipple of the power steering fluid reservoir. Install the hose clamps, being sure they are past the hose retention beads on reservoir nipples.
  4. Lower vehicle.

Do I need to remove this screw prior to removing the reservoir? Then just reinstall when the new reservoir is installed in the bracket?
