poss a worn shifter or the cables need some lube, also check that a mat hasn't slipped up behind the pedal


It could also be a clutch or gearbox issue, when was the gearbox Oil checked/changed ?

Usual questions: What's the mileage? How long have you had it? Has it suddenly happened, or has it gradually got worse? What work has been done on it recently? Has it had a recent knock?

As above, whereabouts is the noise coming from? Could be cables, the mechanism in the car or the selector tower. Try these with the engine off first to help identify location.

A thorough drain and refill of gearbox fluid could also help, using Redline or something similar 

The Mk1 generally have a notchy gearchange - which can be improved by using some very thin washers on the gearbox.
