Been using my sud a lot lately as i sold my impreza and have found first and second gear harder and harder to find! Sometimes it goes straight in and other times it takes me 3-4 attempts, which can be embarrassing it lights and roundabouts! It never crunches and is wierd that it seems to be better when cold but only slightly! Have been using the going for second then first which works but now second is even getting tricky! i dont think it is the actual gearbox its self as when it does go in its not stiff or tight its like its not there and i keep getting 3rd! its as though the lever wont go far enough to the left! wondered if it could actually be worn at the lever end? anyone else had this or is it just me being a crap driver! and use to modern cars, All the other gears are fine and smooth in and out!
