Why Does My Manual Transmission Grind when shifting?

If the clutch is working properly, the most likely cause of grinding when shifting into forward gears is worn or broken synchronizers in the transmission. Rebuilding the transmission is the only repair. If the grinding happens when shifting into reverse, make sure the car is not moving forward. Many cars do not have synchronizers for reverse.
