Hi has anyone experienced or seen this happen before.

Car is an 06 Amazon 4.2 Auto. 1HDFTE.  70k miles

Very easy paper round until we bought it.

We had it 6 months and after one journey towing a trailer, we noticed a very light fast tapping noise. , took it straight to the garage and they found the idler gear with 2missing teeth and significant damage to some others. the teeth were in the sum. No other damage/wear apparent at all. We have sourced the part we need to fix it, but curious/concerned to know how it happened in the first place.  Just unlucky or something more sinister?

The servicing done and timing belt was changed by the garage we bought it from.
