I REPLACED THE STARTER AFTER IT JUST SPINS WITHOUT ENGAGING THE FLYWHEEL. NEW STARTER DOES THE SAME
1994 Mercedes Benz C280
I replaced the starter after I figured out that I needed a 2' extension and universal joint adapter. My new starter does the same thing as the one that I replaced. It spins without engaging the flywheel.

Try shimming it closer to the flexplate by using starter shims
