Sounds like the dreaded 5th gear crunch, either syncromesh has gone or you need a new 5th gear, sorry but im not very technically minded i just know thats what happened to mine!!

yer mines knackered at the mo starts off as slight crunch between 4th and 5th then eventually it wont go into 5th above about 1500rpm(like mine is at the mo)will be getting it done soon hopefully though, if the box is coming out putting a new clutch and flywheel on at the same time as clutch aint great but no pennies yet been told it could be syncro,selector forks,retaining nut on 5th gear, cant tell till its out but not expecting it to be cheap!!!
