I'm having the same problem mate.

I change down from 2nd to 1st when i have to come to a complete stop but it doesnt always go in smoothly.

I've checked my gear linkages and my clutch is fine so im thinking its internal.

May be worth getting the gear box oil replaced. 'They have to have a very specific ammount of oil in them and its not like a normal box where you can chek the level by using the wing nut at the front of the gearbox.

My advice, take it to a local garage and ask them to replace the gearbox oil but mention that it has to be done correctly to avoid gearbox wear.
