That is not 100% chance unfortunately.
Last month, as I was on a larger maintenance process, I took the oportunity to have a look to my TA. There was nothing alarming neither any error flashing beforehand. However the engine was 105,000 km so I took a look at the TAs just to make sure, and bingo! The 7th to 10th gears teeth were obviously damaged and needed care, this is the same pattern for all the actuators.
As a preventive measure I just sent it to rebuild.org.uk and within a week it was back home. Yes, it is much more expensive than only gears fetched on ebay, but a quart of what a brand new OEM worth.
Here is a pic of my gears after 105k km which is self explanatory.
