I have not had to replace the solinoid (bendix).
If its having trouble turning the car, chances are you have a bad battery or more likely a bad connection some where.
Clean all your connections first especially the earth strap.
Make sure it has a good battery & give it a try.
Jumper leads have never worked for me.
You would be better with a change over starter if the solinoid is bad, the rest of the starter will be on the way out.

Good luck
