Sticky 1st Gear

Hi guys. I have a 52 Reg Accent MVi and, occasionally when changing down into 1st gear, My gearstick sometimes doesnt want to go into place, or it will go into place but the car will still be in neutral.

Also, sometimes, when it feels like it hasnt quite gone in right, and i lift off the clutch, the car gets stuck somewhere inbetween gears and cant move, and i have to yank the gearstick (quite hard) back into neutral.

Any idea on what's causing this?

Many thanks,

Maybe you got some bent linkage under the stick shift. It's worth pulling up the stick shift and having a look. Otherwise you might have cable adjustment problems or your trans is broke.
