Clutch throwout bearing seems to be going

It started on the way to work today, as a pulsation in the clutch as it
is engaged and disengaged. I figured it was something to do with the clutch,
but when parking the garage this evening, I heard a pretty bad bearing
sound from the car as I press the clutch in.

With 220k+, I believe I need to do the full clutch job even though the rest
of the clutch may be fine (sorry Bernie),.Has anyone of you actually done
this themselves? any advice???  I plan to do the engine rear, and tranny
front seals while this R&R happens.

This may be the first time the q gets to go to a mechanic.....
Ingo, Shawn? any mechanic recommendations?
