it could be a bearing in a pulley.
investigate these
and i dont thing throw out bearings usually wine
you'll know when they go out, it will want to stay in gear at a stop even when you have the clutch in

I don't believe changing a belt is that hard. Your talking to someone who also hasnt done any REAL work on a car, but I do work on gas powered bumper cars, and it is fairly simple to change a belt. (no, im not compairing a gas powered bumper car to our cars, haha) just saying I dont believe its that hard.
