If it has excessive wear in the rack & pinion then rebuilding or replacement may be necessary.
The rack and pinion is attached to the far end of the steering column from the steering wheel. It normally in or just below the engine compartment. Depending on your car this can be enormously complicated and difficult or quite easy. I recommend you get a copy of a proper repair manual for your car.

The power steering on a vehicle can be jammed due to a rack and pinion issue in the steering column. Another possible cause could be that the power steering fluid may be low and the power steering pump may be going out.
Very simply. Inside the steering unit, there is a rod called a rack. It has vertical teeth on it like an upside down handsaw. In the column is a shaft with a gear on the end of it called a pinion. It's similar to the pinion gear in a rear axle. When you turn the wheel, the pinion gear makes the rack move sideways. This gives very precise steering to a car. Need a link to more information?
