1999 Subaru impreza 5 speed.
Fifth gear grinds when you try to put it into gear, all other gears go in without a issue including reverse.
If I shift out of reverse doesn't want to shift go into 1st at idle without letting clutch out in neutral.
I have heard that 5th gear is separate from the rest of the gearbox, there is a nut that backs off the gear.
I am wondering if this could be the linkage or the gear nut.
What would be a good way to figure out which it is?
I can't seem to find any good information on the net or how to fix the gear nut if that is the problem.
Any help is appreciated.

Kind of sounds like your clutch cable has stretched and needs to be tightened a little. But if it is the nut holding on 5th gear, you don't need to split the transmission in half, but you do need to remove the rear half of the trans case. I circled the nut & 5th gear in this pic: I was not able to torque it to spec in my own garage and had to bring the thing to a transmission shop.
