Gearbox crunches when going into 5th gear


Whenever I shift into 5th, there is a crunch from the box. I can shift in super-slowly and carefully to not get a crunch, but that's no fun!
Someone suggested it might be a micro clutch mesh that needs replacing.

Has anyone got any other suggestions?

And can anyone suggest a decent place to take it in the South West to have it looked at?

It's a 1.4 XSI gearbox with shorter final drive.
Car is S2 in blue, 16v single plug VTS engine.
