    Sounds like a worn synchro.

    A chap on here managed to do something similar by balancing his laptop ontop of the gearstick for a while with the engine running!

    mines a bit difficult going from 1st down to 2nd, then when its warmed up it frees off a little but is still a bit hard to engage, i think its down to the age of the car
