Mine was dropping straight out of 1st gear.
The problem started suddenly and from what I can remember (it was 11 years ago!) there was no prior warning.
I was driving through a small village only about a mile from my destination, went to select 1st to pull away in a queue of traffic and it wasn't having it. Managed to get it moving enough to get to a wider section so I could park without causing gridlock then called a friend for a tow. I may have quickly got it to 2nd, but it is too long ago to remember the exact detail, but thinking now it did it a few times earlier in the village before I finally gave up and parked it.
The actuator was fine. It was fitted on to the new gearbox.
