First Gear

Why does my vw gearbox crunch into first gear?

I have a golf gti 16v mk3, and im having trouble with selecting first gear sometimes goes in ok but most of the times it crunches into gear. Any clues folks?????All other gears are fine???

If i need to replace gearbox oil any advice in regard to doing this would be much appreciated.

Thanks.
No this is from a standing start that it crunches into first. Would appreciate sensible answers thanks.

Sam your a twat do u understand that??
I have noticed that it crunches into first more when the car has been used for say 20 mins or so then it starts to happen more??? Going to get the gearbox oil changed as i suspect this maybe where the fault lies. Your thoughts please.

You can try changing the gearbox oil, but usually your problem isn't fixed by that. That is more for if you are having problems between the other gears (2nd to 3rd, ect.) If you are standing still, push the clutch in and it grinds, then it sounds like there is a problem with the clutch. If, for example, you reverse and come to a complete stop but shift into first too quickly, it can cause a grinding noise like you are describing. It can't hurt to change the oil (I recommend using Redline brand gearbox oil MTL) if it's never been done, just to see if that does help before you go looking into other things. There are 2 plugs, one drain on the bottom, one fill on the side toward the front of the car.
