It's possible, but you'd have to buy an entire pump from a junkyard. It's cheap enough to just replace it so there's not really any point in taking it all apart!!!

Jeep grand Cherokee does the power steering cap

Open the hood of your Jeep Grand Cherokee. Locate the power steering pump and reservoir on the front driver's side of the engine.
Wipe the cap and area around it with a clean rag or paper towel. This will keep dirt out of the system, when you open the cap, as well as keeping some of the dirt and grease off your hands.
Remove the cover from the power steering reservoir by turning it counterclockwise. Lift straight up on the cover to lift the cover and dip stick out of the reservoir.
Note the fluid level on the dip stick. There are several marks indicating "Add" as well as a mark for "Full." If the level is at or below the "Add" mark, you will need to add a small amount of fluid to the system.
Replace the cap onto the reservoir and turn it clockwise to tighten it. Close the hood of the Jeep, making sure it is latched securely.

I have 95 jeep grand cherokee i replaced power steering pump and gear box and i still dont have any power steering

Did you bleed the power steering pump after you replaced it. I know its a dumb question, but I have seen it before.Slowly move the steering wheel back and forth from stop to stop. Make sure the fluid is always full or you will reintroduce air into the system.

How to replace the power steering pump in a jeep grand cherokee 4.7 1999

Pretty simple unbolt and bolt back on operation. One thing though is most rebuilt pumps come with no pulley and you will need a machine shop to transfer yours to the new one. A special tool is necessary to do that so don't attempt it without the tool. If you haven't ever done this work, get a manual such as haynes or will not only help you there but in the future too.
After it's installed, fill the reservoir with power steering fluid and gently turn the steering wheel all the way in one direction (running) and then all the way in the other direction. Re-fill the reservoir and do the same again 'till the air in the system has been purged. Some fluid foaming and slight noise is normal but should disappear after a half hour or so.

Jeep 1999 wrangler Power steering pump failure

not normally
there may be metal flakes in the filter in the reservoir so replacing it would be a good idea
don't bother repairing the pump, it will be more cost effective to get a new one
if short of cash , get a good unit from the wreckers/ junk yard

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee leaking coolant and power steering fluid

Just a heads up, $10 bucks will buy you a seal kit for the P.S. pump. I topped mine off for a couple months, then the oring on the high pressure line (from pump, front center) blew and dumped the reservoir in a matter of miles.

The line can be a stinker to get off, recommend driving the car for a few minutes to heat up the pump a little. Don't forget the 20MM wrench.
