why is my 2009 grinding into 1st and 5th gear? PatrickB134 We just had the clutch replaced in our 2009 Toyota Corolla.  Now it grinds going into 1st and 5th gear.  We have never had any problems with it prior to that.  Is it possible that the clutch isn't adjusted right or is the synchro bad?  It drives worse now than before replacing the clutch.
