On all engines except the 2UZ-FE, the starter is external, mounted in a conventional manner, alongside the engine block. One the 2UZ-FE, however, the starter is mounted in the 'V' of the engine, between the cylinder head banks. The entire intake manifold assembly must be removed to access the starter motor and solenoid. (Toyota calls the solenoid a "magnetic switch.")

Many clicks = bad cables or a bad/weak battery.
Don't replace the starter. If there was just ONE click, I would advise you to remove the starter & inspect the starter solenoid contacts.
I agree, replace the cables, and maybe have the battery tested for percent of health.
