I did pull some side/spider gear pieces off my rear diff drain plug magnet about 2 months ago.
Side spider gear pieces, I've seen them in the oil.

You may want to do a web search for a used r160 rear diff.

Or rebuild yours before it goes. I should have kept my old one and had it rebuilt, like my tranny guy told me...after I dumped it.
