Took starter off, bendix appears to be fine but seems to stick... on 2003 Mazda Mazda6

AND flywheel def. has some teeth missing. Would that be the main cause of problem or could it be the problem is with bendix and once that is replaced it will still run with the missing teeth on flywheel?

u must repl flywheel and starter if you want it to work
My Dad is insisting the teeth are not that worn, and a new starter will solve problem!Please help, he is trying to make me go buy one now...is there a chance if they are worn, not missing, it will work?
