2004 Saturn Ion 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 62400 miles. I fixed a wrecked ion, the passenger side front wheel bows in at the top. I went to get it aligned and they said the tie rod end was bent on the passenger side. What does this part look like and how can I fix it myself? Thanks.

You didn't say if it was the inner or the outer that is bent. If it's the inner. You will need an inner tie rod tool. You must disconnect, and unscrew the outer, then remove the dust boot, then unscrew the inner, reverse to install new one. The right one shows the inner, installed on the rack.
