Push gearlever across then just hold gear stick whilst letting clutch up to just before bite(sorta halfway-ish) it`l drop in easier then,tis a kinda regular scooby thing-mine does it sometimes-nothing to worry about though.
Best sealant used to date- Fourstar ultimate paint protection *Now discontinued* Rebranded as sonus SFX4 paint sealant-Try some ya wont be dissapointed.

As Dave says. Mine does it on occasion and it can take a few seconds of faffing to get it in.
