    Could be the selector slipping or the baulk ring within the gearbox ... BUT whatever it is stop driving it ASAP and get it recovered and resolved ASAP otherwise it could end up knackering he whole gear box

    0-Large smile ......every time it's driven

    No way! Thats a nightmare. Hopefully it's the selector linkage thats gone... I had this happen on a Focus once. Fingers crossed for you. Have you got any assistance? AA or RAC or similar? If not, you can call them on: AA 0800 085 2721 and ask to join over the phone. RAC 0844 774 3489 and ask the same. I think the AA is cheaper and the call will be cheap. RAC is an 0844 which is around £2 per minute from a mobile.

    Have faith!! If the selector rods have gone, that would cause popping out of gears and if they've snapped/gone then you won't be able to get any gears!

    Keep us posted buddy.
