Blue Cooper Mini One (51 plate) Stiff Gearbox

My beloved Whinnie has started to be troublesome with her gears. Reverse is a swine when she's been parked up all day/overnight and I keep missing 1st and putting her in 3rd and vice versa which isn't good when you're already travelling at a relatively good speed to nearly have your head hit the windscreen! I've read about removing the air filter and greasing the linkages and consulted my Haynes Manual but am unable to find the relevant info. Could anyone send me a link for instructions with possible screen shots so I can tackle this at the weekend. Many thanks in advance

Changing the gearbox oil may help as well.
