W208 gearbox problems

I was driving home tonight, when all of a sudden there was a clonk sound and the revs shot up and I had no power. The car was in drive but felt as though it was in neutral. I stopped, put it in park turned it off and on again back into drive and again another clonk it went in but it won't let me use tip tronic or even change on its own. I think it's stuck in second. Also when I put it in reverse it sometimes won't engage and when it does it again makes a loud clonk.
Any ideas what it may be?
The car is a 230 coupe on a 2000 and has done just over 150k. I have recently changed the brake switch too.

Any ideas/help would be great!

Drove the car today after letting it idle in the driveway for 10 minutes and its driving fine.
Does anyone have any thoughts or advice?
