are you going up or down the box when this happens? i've not heard of it in the lower gears but occasionally i have difficulty getting 4th in mine, going down from 5th but i think thats more my driving than the car, ooops :D maybe you aren't dipping the clutch quite enough, i had thus trouble with some dodgy car mats that i brought. maybe its this thats causing the problem.....

don't be heavy handed....I've found this is a problem with the Yaris if any downward pressure is applied, if you just use a few fingers against the shifter, she's a lot smoother, rather than full hands on.

I've advised this before... and apparently it did the trick.

try to put it in gear, take it out of gear, lift clutch (AKA coasting) then put it back into gear, that should work, this happens cos the gears are not lined up properly

There's no need to double clutch unless your driving a semi truck

That's what synchromesh is for...gears not lined up??? The teeth will not grind as the gears which are trying to mesh have been "synchronised" or made to turn at the same speed to that when they engage, there will not be any speed difference between them and they will just slide quietly together

All forward gears are synched. that's why when your going backwords...you can easily engage first, but if your moveing forwards, then your always going to crunch the gears when engaging reverse.
