    could be anything mate. the syncromesh has gone, clutch failiure (highly improbable as you wouldn't hear a bang), gear leaver problem. either way one could and probably will lead to another

    It doesn't sound like the linkage with the thud and it jumping out of gear , That would point to a gearbox fault to me (hope I'm wrong ),
    Can you get it in gear when it is stationary with or without the engine running ?.
    I hope it's easy fix mate and not an expensive one

    I think your right there 1st and 2nd not being on the same shaft , It's looking more like linkage /selctor , I take it the gear stick feels normal inside the car ? , Are these cable rather than rods from the gearstick to the g/box ?, Just wondering wether the thud would be a cable snapped or rod broke or poped of it's ball
