Got to agree with that,if the release bearing is on the way out which by the sound of things it is I wouldn't say the rest of the assembly isn't much cop.For the sake of an extra half hours work it's a must.
It is a lot of work to get access to the release bearing (gearbox remove etc). Personally I would not bother about it until it really starts to scream at you - unless of course you want to change the clutch anyway.
A few months ago I dropped a new clutch into the daughter's corsa B. I installed a new release bearing at the same time. The new bearing is already making a "whirring" noise whan the clutch is depressed and it can't have done more than 500 miles. You win some you lose some.
Just because it has become a little noisy does not mean it will suddenly fail on you.
