We recently had a bad bearing in a fairly new Bell 407 transmission (1300 hours-ish) and just got another chip light. Sadly the detector was full of some fairly large metal particles so the transmission is off to the shop again (at 1520 hours).

Is anyone else having problems with 407 transmissions with fairly low time?

This same aircraft had a mast overtorqued when almost new by the Bell service center rep doing warranty work. Any possibility this is related to that incident?

Your thoughts and any recent experiences with similar problems are appreciated.
