    The symptoms sound like a "dry" throw out bearing.

    If you have quite a few miles on the vehicle, I would think about replacing the clutch assembly and throw out bearing together, if you chose to replace it.
    Be aware that on your vehicle, that the clutch slave cylinder and the throw out bearing are one unit.
    It will eventually become more noisy and fail. So it is something that you should consider taking care of sooner than later.
    As for cost, you are looking at between $300-$550 for an aftermarket clutch and about $150 for a clutch slave cylinder/throw out bearing unit.
    And the labor roughly 5-7 hours.
    Dealer prices for the clutch assembly is far more expensive.
