Try changing the gearbox Oil, the 2.2 isn't the most refined CR diesel, you can feel vibration in the gearbox at idle and slightly in the pedal

vibration is when it is under load, just checked and Oil was changed at last service (119000), cluich and flywheel was changed (79000).

Im no expert but on my previous avensis 55 plate.. i had the problem on getting 1st gear, it was the clutch not cheap with dmf wheel, depending on where you go £800+..hope its not that!!

Strange to give bother so early after being replaced, especially a Toyota DMF and clutch

Was the Oil changed to a straight 75w grade? Silkolen (fuchs) Pro SRG do a great Oil. Could be the DMF! But check the Oil 1st...

Sounds to me like something is out of adjustment. I wouldn't bother changing your gearbox Oil until the fault has been diagnosed. Oil is pretty slippery stuff and unlikely to prevent you from selecting 1st. Something out of adjustment in the gear selector mechanism I expect.
