Default Gear Grinding in 99 impreza?

What can i do to fix the fact that if im tryin to switch from first to second very fast and it grinds like a bitch haha. I have to give it time to switch otherwise it grinds horribly...this happens to first gear if im in neutral at a light and im not payin attention and try to change to first very fast, but the grinding isnt as drastic....Any info on how to fix it or wat to do to change it would be awesome....


thanks in advance

Pete

I have the same problem with reverse: I just pumping the clutch but that doesn't work. Shifting into 2nd/1st a bunch of times seems to get it in though.

sounds like maybe if youre trying to shift fast, that youre possibly going into the gear before the clutch grabs all the way..but if it grinds other times even if u dont shift fast, id try changing the trans fluid 1st IMO. go with the Uncle Scotty's cocktail. that seems to work with a lot of people

I know your problem, I used to have it. You need new syncros. I had my transmission rebuilt and there is such a big difference when you get new syncros that sometimes I swear it shifts from 1st to 2nd by itself at high RPM. This is in my 99 OBS.
