This may be a bit involved if you don't do much work on cars, but a brief run down I listed here, if you want to do the job your self you will need a few tools that the normal drivers tool kit wont have. So best you get a work shop manual first and have a good read.
All electrical connections on the gear box & speedo unhooked
Jack up and place on stands under body.
remove drive shafts both sides.
Remove exhaust engine pipe.
Undo shift cables & clutch controls.
Support g/box remove all but one bell housing bolts
remove gear box mounts and Any cross members if in way.
Remove if fitted tin access plate lower bell housing
with g/box supported remove last bolt and with draw gear box.
Remove clutch & remove fly wheel for machining.
Replace thrust bearing.
Re fit in reverse make sure the fly wheel is torqued to spec, you will need a clutch aligning tool to fit the clutch.
If you have all the tools needed and someone to help you read the text in the manual and make sure that you understand exactly what you are doing. It's not a hard job, but you have to understand what is required so that you and your car come out the other side in one piece.
