remove your wheel to access before you remove tie rod mark the thread on the rack side, then its a matter of removing the split pin and loosening off the nut closes to the wheel then give it a good wack dont hit the thread once its free leave it until you crack the nut on the rack side once you have done this completely remove the old tie rod install the new one and wind it on to the position where you have marked and then put it back together your alignment still might not be accurate though it shouldnt be far out i would suggest a wheel alignment afterwards

SOURCE: left side tie rod end
I think what you're talking of is the rack end....which you'll need to replace...depending on where you are in the world, it's probable that the parts your talking about will come in sets of rack ends and tie rod ends together....You'll definitely need to replace that broken part.....when you're dealing with that one test the tie rod end for play...(that's the part which fits into the wheel side of the unit)....Once finished on the side your working on, check the other side too and replace were you need to....You would be doing yourself a favour to check the ball joints too....Those are the balled joints that allow the steering wheels to turn left and right....On your vehicle there are two on each wheel.....upper and lower.....If any of them break when you're travelling at high speed, you can end up in hospital or worse.... You may also be putting the lives of those around you at risk too
We want you around for a long time yet....Have a good happy long Life

Usually they can be replaced with a little effort. You would need to get under the car and pry the broken part off the control arm. The tierod end is threaded onto the shaft. There is a bolt which compresses the tierod end onto the tierod. Loosen the compression bolt and unthread the end from the shaft rod. Counting the number of turns to remove it will be the number of turns to replace it. Mount it and then get a front end alignment which is a good idea before something else breaks.
