The thrust bearing is normally a part of a new clutch kit.Comprises pressure plate, clutch plate and thrust bearing.You will need to remove the gear box to change the bearing.The bearing basically slides onto the gearbox shaft. Recommend changing all three rather than just the beaing.You may want to get quotes from garages as dealers are expensive.

advance auto parts total price for all bearing, front and rear and seals come to $70.00. labor should be about that much(plus cost of grease) good luck

Pretty hard to tell you it's a release bearing without hearing it but unless release bearing is in very bad shape & making lots of noise, it's very unlikely that is the culprit here. Does the clutch disengage properly, as in car doesn't creep when pedal depressed? Check master cylinder & slave cylinder movement, perhaps bleeding slave will help, but if it's only in second gear that the problem is occurring then I'd give linkages a real good coat of lubricant & see if that helps at all.

Unfortunately, you can't really tell until you have the parts in front of you. If the clutch showed no signs of slipping in any gear, then the disk and pressure plate are probably ok. Throwout bearing troubles are usually heard as a sort of screech when the pedal is depressed. If the pressure plate is the type that has 3 fingers that are pushed by the bearing and one of the fingers was bent/broken, it would make a rattling sound. If the car has considerable miles, it might be worthwhile to replace the whole assembly even though the clutch itself seems to working well. Hope this helps!
