What kind of vehicle? There are different transmissions, and different setups. For example, front wheel drive transmissions usually have to be supported from above the engine to remove the transmission. Then the clutch, and throwout bearing can be replaced. Caution!!! The engine being supported is NOT the only different thing you have to do. So reply with your vehicle Make, Model, and Year. I will be able to help you.

Your throw-out bearing has went bad in the clutch assembly. You will have to replace the bearing. Inquire about a throw-out bearing at your local auto-parts store. It is a good rule of thumb that if you're going to dissasemble the clutch assembly, you should replace the clutch, and pressure plate too! When clutch-assy has been removed, check the fly-wheel for scarring on its face where the clutch assembly was once attached. The face should be smooth, and the fly-wheel should NOT be warped, pitted, or damaged! If it is, replace it before you put a brand new clutch assembly back onto the vehicle.

You replace it. As long as you have the transmission out, you might as well put the clutch and pressure plate in also.

To adjust a clutch you fire three rounds at the gas tank. Then you throw a lit match into your 240sx's upholstery. For best results, climb under the car at this point. Have a friend nearby to collect the remnants of the clutch and gearbox. Careful, it will be hot.

This depends on what bearings in what make model year and engine of car.

I will be straight and say I am not Nissan familiar with the trucks they make.However the issue is pretty much the normal in terms of problems.First I will ask is the clutch and related parts such as the pilot bearing and release bearing(also known as the throw out) have alot of either age/wear/mileage on it.Normal symptoms of a throw out bearing noise are these,noisy in neutral with the clutch pedal NOT depressed,noisy while in gear(any gear),but the noise will go away when the pedal is pushed in.In most cases yes the throw out bearing be noisy under the stated issues would point to it being worn and should be replaced along with a complete clutch kit as a good rule of thumb.Now the other side of the issue is you can replace the clutch and related items and release bearing and if for some reason the noise is STILL present whether in neutral or in gear that would point to the bearings in the transmission itself.If this is the case you would need the transmission rebuilt at least to replace the bearings for the transmission.The only concern I have based on your question is the grinding sound to (ME) points to the bearings in the transmission.A release bearing can duplicate this noise and if your clutch is the original I would replace it and the parts suggested first.Unless you actually drain the manual transmission gear fluid and find alot of metal shavings on the drain plug that should have a magnet on it's tip it would point definetily to the bearings in the transmissions around the gears.I hope this helps give you some usefull info and while my area is Mazda brand the issue is like I said pretty much the same regardless of brand unless Nissan is prone to certain things over time that clearly I would not be aware of.OK

Throwout bearings are permanently lubricated and as such do not have a grease fitting. If the bearing grinds when you press the clutch your throwout bearing is trashed. Since it only makes noise when your clutch is rattling around, it's just an annoyance. If it gets to the point where it makes noise when you press the clutch you need a clutch job.

Usually the runners can be carefully removed using a thin screwdriver and the bearings should drop out. Replace the bearings and replace the runner by using a 30mm socket or press if you have one.

The clutch release ("throw-out") bearing has gone bad...Use a new clutch disc when you replace the clutch release bearing...or it could be the clutch master cylinder. Check the master cylinder first...Look for any sign of leakage from either component .
