Clutch release baring ???

I have a 2.0 sele 156 which has always made a wooshing noise as it changes gear, today it got a lot worse... the noise that is, it changes gear ok but Im worried it is going to leave me stranded, looking at other threads it seems it could be the clutch release bearing but I am no expert, so I need some advice as I am driving to Cornwall next week and don't feel confident using the car, so the question is how much of my hard earned should I expect to pay to get it sorted, I am in the London area and need it done this week.

Thanks in advance for any advice

No idea if your problem is actually the release bearing but to get it changed means taking out the gearbox so you should really pop in a new clutch at the same time.
London rates can be expensive so i think you are looking at 450-600 inc vat.

whats the mileage of the car ? selespeed release bearings go bang around 120 k , the release bearing of a sele
is (when the engine is running ) always under pressure !
