Ronny is an unknown quantity at this point
I got a new flywheel and clutch installed last month. First time I drove it out, the gears would grind when I shifted from first into second. Now its starting to happen again. I have the clutch pushed in all the way, yet it grinds on the gears when shifting into second.

Try to double clutch when you shift from first to second and if its still grinding then the synchros are ok and your clutch is the problem (most likely).

Bring the car back to where the clutch was installed and let them have a look at it. I assume this hasnt happened before you renew the clutch.
