In my TB 170 QV the gearshift to first or second gear (especially second) is a bit stiff and hard.
It is worst when the gearbox is cold.

No problem with any of the other gears

And periodic, when shifting to second gear, it feels like the gearbox doesn't get fully into gear and jumps back to neutral.

It it just a matter of adjusting or do the cables need to be replaced?

Do anyone have experience they can share?

It is pretty common for the c635 gearbox.
I have this issue since I have the car (4 years now), nothing to worry about.
Some claim changing the gearbox oil helps, I personally just put in the 2nd gear a few times in idle after having started the engine.
A powerflex engine mount helps a bit, I installed it a year ago, this prevents the engine to move during shifting and the gear changing is a bit smoother.
