Gear problem

Problem added: Jun 4, 2008 (12 years ago)
I am finding it difficult to get into first gear particularly when the car is cold. sometimes this affects second gear as well. The car is booked into a garage but I am concerned that my lack of knowledge might get me ripped off. Any ideas on what the problem might be, and estimated cost to fix it?

I'm by no means a mechanic, but I have a Corsa and have had the same problem, all I did was adjust my gear cable slightly, its supposed to auto adjust but a helping hand did the trick.
