1997 S-10 Throw-out bearing

Home  \  Repairs & Maintenance  \  1997 S-10 Throw-out bearing

Hi there! I am a semi-mechanically inclined woman with a '97 S-10. It started sporadically making an awful grinding noise when the clutch is fully engaged and I've determined that it is in all likelihood a bad throw-out bearing. I was thinking about replacing it myself... but it's rather involved - taking off all the cross-members, the exhaust... dropping the tranny... but I'm kinda broke and so I might *have* to give it a try. Can anyone give me a guestimate of what it might cost to have a shop do it for me? I'll take it in and get an estimate but mechanics have a tendency to take the "Don't-Worry-Your-Pretty-Head" approach to women, so I'd like to go armed with some clue...

Thanks!

That will probably run around 400 bucks US. I feel that if you are pulling the tranny you might as well check the clutch as well.
