Misaligned Shift Fork May Cause Transmission to Grind on Upshift on Honda Accord

Some models with the manual transmission can grind while shifting up into fifth gear due to the misalignment of the fifth gear shift fork. The transmission will need to be removed, and fifth gear, the synchronizer sleeve set, and the fifth gear shift fork will need to be replaced.
