after an hour of driving testing out exactly whatís going on with gears, it seems that i also get the crunch a bit in 2nd as well, im not to worried about it as yet as it hasnít made me miss the gear yet, apart from reverse :)

The problem might be caused by two different things. It is caused either by a problem in the linkage or you have a synchromesh problem.

I had the same on my fiesta. Not a fault just a quirk.

Was advised by my dealer not to engage reverse too quickly, hold down clutch for a few seconds before selecting reverse and you should be OK.

As Alex says, sounds like normal operation. Also 1st and 2nd have a device to stop you putting it into gear at a to higher speed, it's to protect the gear box from damage.

If you try going down from second to first at too high a speed the first gear has increased resistance to warn you.
Same going into reverse, it's all about protecting the box.
If you continually have problems with engaging reverse try pumping the clutch pedal a couple of times in neutral and try again.
