Transmission problem

Hi all, can anyone help me ? I have a Antara 2.2 Automatic 2012 model. I was driving home and the car suddenly dropped out of gear when I was slowing down. I pulled over and tried to engage drive and reverse, but the transmission wouldn’t engage. I turned the engine off for about 30 seconds and then restarted, the gears did engage and drive, but when I slowed again it dropped out of gear again. I had to limp home doing this.

Can anyone help with a diagnosis?

There is a bearing in the gearbox which I understand is prone to failure, I think one of the symptoms is the car knocking out of gear or a rattling in the gear level.

Have a look here it may help
