Check and double check that this bolt is nice and tight, mine came loose last week and dropped the gearbox. The gearbox was fine but it shattered my drive shaft. Bad design IMO, just one bolt holding up the gearbox surely it should have a better setup than that

I also had exactly the same problem. The Lower gearbox mount otherwise known as the torque restrictor was the cause. Visibly it looked OK but just needed tightening up and the problem was cured.
