It's a long time since I did anything with a starter motor but you use to be able to change a bendix when they wore out on the teeth, may be in this throw away world you Carnt now but it's a waste if that's the case, may be it screws on opposite direction?

A couple of years ago I had issues with my Merc starter, so I took it off, which was very straightforward and stripped it down for inspection.

As it turned out it just needed a good clean, which did the trick. However, as I understand, it was a bosch type and all the spares are available from a bosch electrical dealer.

the cost of a new one was at least 200 so I would say take it off strip and inspect before renewing anything. If you don't feel confident then take it to a bosch service centre and have them service it for you.
