VMX30 X-Axis Thrust Bearing Replacement

Does anyone have experience replacing the X-Axis thrust bearings on a Hurco VMX? The ones on the X-axis on our machine are going out and need replacing. They've always been a little noisy (used machine), but now they're REALLY noisy and create noticeable vibration. A stethoscope reveals the thrust bearings are the culprit and the ball screw isn't noisy at all. A procedure on replacement or general comments about the process would be great. Thanks!
Have you find a solution that can share? My VMX 24 is starting to make a louder noise also ( x axis ) near the motor.
I wonder if i can change it myself, or need to try an independent repair service. No hurco support near me.
