    could also be a bent shift fork but the doesn't happen very often with the 1-2 shift fork. Could also be the shift fork pads worn off or a shifter problem. Basically its either a bad synchro problem or the synchro isn't be shifted all the way into gear (ie bent fork, worn fork pads, shifter problem).
    What kind of shifter do you have?

    yes...but sometimes things aren't as black and white as you'd expect. IDK, its worth a shot. Otherwise, yes there is something wrong inside the transmission.
