SOURCE: clutch removal
You have to insert a screwdriver through a hole in the bottom of the transmission. while pushing the fork away from the engine you push the retainer clip with the screwdriver blade. it should release the bearing and cause the cluch fork to move freely toward the engine. It may take you a few tries to do this. This is whats known as an reverse pressure plate assembly. I think its kinda stupid idea. If only the designers would look at what it takes to work on these things......

I have found it easier to remove the engine to replace the clutch on my 1986 Samurai it you have the proper tools to pull the engine it took less time than pulling the transmission in my experence.

The symptoms of a bad throwout bearing is a horrible noise that ONLY occurs when you are pressing on the clutch. And/or you have no clutch action at all - the car is either in gear or it's in neutral. Sounds just like your situation alright.
Usually bad throwout bearings damage pressure plate fingers to the point that they need replacing too. And while they are in there, they will want to replace the clutch disk too. And then lathe the flywheel flat again so that they don't have a repeat customer complaining about the lousy clutch $job$ he just got. Flat flywheels supposedly won't chatter on take off or clutch engagement, but it could be hose job where you get soaked as well.
I went this route once on a gremlin - $500. The only reason I paid up was that I had a real good job at the time, and then I've never been back either.
