It is possible that it was wired incorrectly but that would most likely not cause the single click and grinding at times.
Here is a guide that will help with some info on replacing these:
I will attach the info on how to replace the starter as well from the manual, but I am also attaching the wiring diagram below.
I suspect you have another faulty starter, or you don't have enough voltage getting to the starter to get it to turn over.
Basically, we need to check the voltage and find out what is there at the starter.
Please see the wiring diagram below and let us know what you find with this, and we can go from there.
