Laguna I gearbox fault?

Managed to track down the source of an odd ratling noise. Was hoping it was the exhaust but turns out to be more interesting that that...

If I hold a drive shaft on the inboard end I can waggle it around in its socked hence the knocking noise. How serious is this? I am thinking along the lines of gearbox bearings. Does this mean impending doom or could it be OK for a couple of years?

Its a 1.8 8v petrol by the way with 142k miles on the clock Engine is running fine so seems a pity if the gearbox is on the way out.

Any help appreciated!!

Could be the inner cv joint on the driveshaft has gone. Only way to know for sure would be to take the shaft out and check it.
