If it is the 3rd gear there may not be any metal in the filter, at least in my 07 there was not. I found a tooth in my drain hole that I fished out with a magnet.
Does it make the characteristic "loose chain" noise that everyone describes when this happens?? As far as I know everyone who has had 3rd gear issues has had this noise. Somebody can correct me if I am wrong, but I had the noise an my 3rd was missing 3 teeth.
Also its not convenient, but if you pull the top end you can see the gears looking down into the crank case, this is just another verification point before the cases get split
