Can you recheck the model or the year? There is no IS 250 in 1999. Do you have the VIN available?

If you're getting oil leaking from and behind that gear it is not the gear that is failed it is the seal the bad news is in order to remove that seal you have to remove the camshaft assembly than the gear is disassembled from the end of the cam in order to get to that seal to replace it.
