202 starter motor issues

Hello guys. I finally got my new water pump on and went to start the old girl she went first pop but sounded bad like the starter was stuck on. Bridged the terminals with a screwdriver and it made a bad crunching noise. So I took the dust cover off and had a look I think I can see the starter gear still engaged with the flywheel would that be the issue? And how can I fix it without taking starter out preferably cos I don't have much time on m hands ๐Ÿ™„ if I do have to take it out can I fix it or buy a new one? Also the flywheel looks to have copped a bit of a flogging a fair few teeth have been chewed out would this be a problem?

She's a blue 202 in a wb ute

Cheers, Kyle

you can buy a new starter for around a $120 off ebay
might need another ring gear or a second hand fly wheel might be a cheap option if the ring gears badly damages on the teeth

Have you tried rocking and rolling the car in gear to release it? Also, before starting it again, try turning the fan by hand to move the flywheel to a different spot, one that's not butchered.

It's not a fix, but can get things working temporarily.
