starter dead

my starter clicks but doesn't turn and the lights dim when i try to start it. If I Hit it with a hammer it will turn but disengages before I can get it to start.
I've replaced many starters but not a MB Diesel. Any tricks or tips before I climb under it to pull it out?

What model? 240D can come out from below in about 10 minutes. 300D is quite a bit tougher to do.

its a 240d
I just picked up the starter
its a 240D.
I think I might need a fork lift to lift the new one.
it is a bosch. I got it at a local Advance Auto Parts for $118.00 and $35.00 for the core. Its heavy.
