Hi welcome to will answer your question the best I can,

With the engine off can you select the gears

yes. in fact to engage the reverse gear I have to turn the engine off, apply the reverse gear, press the clutch pedal and start the engine with the clutch pedal pressed. than I can reverse the car.

all other gears are still funtional but all are a bit stiff, especially the 1st gear.
maybe it needs some tension adjustment to the clutch cable?

Expert:  Greg replied 5 years ago.

First check the clutch adjustment and gearbox oil .

If these are okay get back to me.

Regards Greg
