Question Crunching in lower gears

Hi all, I may have sold my Vito but am still in charge of maintaining my dads 110CDi, My question is... It has the usual problems selecting Reverse, second and 4th, I adjusted the cables with not much change and have ordered new cables in case they have stretched but I have noticed if you try and select any of the 3 downward gears it grinds when selecting... surely if it were a cable or mechanism problem it would be the same without the grinding?

Just to confirm it grinds when clutch is fully depressed and trying to select 2nd or 4th. If it were the clutch then it would grind getting into 1st, 3rd or 5th which it doesn't so I am wondering if it is a gearbox/syncromesh problem??

I may be going over the top and it just need some replacement cables?

Any advice would be great
