      There is no accurate method to determine the damage extent nor the specific parts needing replacement via the internet. The best approach for you would be to obtain at least two written estimates based on physical inspection at local shops, to determine the needed parts to fix.

      Always replace the CV drive axles in pairs/sets due to mileage / age / wear considerations.

      Check the various on-line vendors;,,, to list only a few. For example, they (RockAuto) list the front CV drive axle assemblies from around $42.00 each for your vehicle.

      Most likely the issue is related to the clutch hydraulic slave or master cylinder worn. Try the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; or for the replacement parts. For example, they (RockAuto) list the clutch master cylinder for around $21.00 and the clutch slave cylinder for around $11.00 for your vehicle.

      Some people,without realising it have a habit of driving with their foot resting close or lightly on the clutch pedal.This habit can wear the throughout-bearing prematurely.You have to become conscious of yourself when driving and see if you are doing it without realising it.

      You should diagnose your vehicle first with a scan tool to determine if there is a stored trouble code in your PCM. The extracted trouble code will help you find the fault of your vehicle's problem.

      Also check your transmission fluid level, might be low. A dirty or clogged transmission filter and/or broken/out of adjustment transmission shift cable can also cause this kind of trouble in your transmission.

      Did you already diagnose your vehicle with a scan tool to verify if there is a stored trouble code and to check if all your electrical controls and sensors are still functioning well.
