Vauxhall Movano/renault master gearbox fault

I have a Vauxhall Movano 2.5litre non turbo diesel. Often I cannot select 1st & 2nd gears. Any ideas what the problem is? Thanks.

It sounds like the "synchromesh" rings in the gearbox have worn out. This happens most to 2nd and 1st gear because these gears are used most often. The synchro-rings even the RPM-differences of the different gears in the gearbox. They wear out as a result from not clutching properly, shifting gears very rapid or shifting down with a lot of RPM's. The solution to renovate the gearbox is expensive like alle gearbox problems.
