On some models the manual transmission fifth gear can grind on upshift due to a misaligned fifth shift fork. The transmission will have to be removed and disassembled and the fifth gear, the fifth sleeve set and the fifth gear shift fork will have to be replaced to repair this issue.

only happens when im at high rpms in fourth engaging into fifth gear. But also when im trying to put my car into reverse, it hesitates.
