Question about Cars & Trucks
Do you mean throwout bearing? Thrust bearings are in the engine. Then too, are you sure it's a throwout bearing that's the problem? Usually those make all kinds of noise when they're bad. I'm betting it's a pressure plate. If you're tearing into it anyway, replace the bearing, pressure plate and clutch disk all at the same time. As far as how to do it? You'll be separating the transmission from the engine for starters. How tough that is depends on the vehicle.

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.

SOURCE: noisey thrust bearing
all transmisions must be removed to remove thrust bearing there is no way around it its a ring bearing around a shaft that goes thru the cluch into the flywheel!

If clutch is not adjustable then more likely to be pressure plate springs and thrust bearing(combination of both)replace whole clutch at one time.saves time later.....
