Manual grinding

'95 w/ Manual- Grinds when downshifting into 2nd anywhere over 1RPM. Have to slow way down to get it into 2nd without grinding. It doesn't grind when upshifting into 2nd, but it sometimes does seem kinda sticky, like it's stuck for a fraction of a second. It doesn't grind or stick going into any other gears up or down. Synchronizer maybe? Hope not. Any suggestions? Thanks

Mine does the same, check your clutch pedal bushing. It can cause it to do that and if you don't fix it soon after it starts then it will continue to do it after you fix the bushing due to wearing down the synchro(like mine). I don't even attempt downshifting into 2nd anymore
