Hi there good evening to you and Iam very sorry for the delayed response
Ok if you are experiencing intermitent starting issues combined by a whirring noise which continues after starter replacement then this indicates a worn ring gear on the flywheel (the part the starter teeth engages with )
In this case to replace the ring gear the gearbox would need to be removed in order to remove the flywheel /ring gear
