You have to take off the tranny to get to it and if the clutch has never been changed it would be a good time to do so. I just had all my stuff swapped out ( clutch, throw out bearing, rear main seal, adj cable, and fork )and I spend with labor around $700.
The throw-out bearing is essential to the smooth working of the clutch in a car with manual transmission. When you press the clutch, the throw-out bearing temporarily stops the flow of power to the car’s engine by taking pressure plate off the clutch disc. It does so by applying power to the release fingers of the pressure plate until they are pushed against the pressure plate spring force. This allows you to change gears easily without damaging your gear box.
