Recent service with Toyota dealer came up saying:

Drive belt is cracking.
Front axle joint is 'sweating'.

Are these common? How does it get fixed?

bring it somewhere else and get a 2nd opinion before you get it fixed....... dealer may be trying to screw you

and what do they mean by "sweating"?

Dude, you got 220,000 km on a 99 rolla.. chances are you're due for these depending on how hard or not you drove your car.

Drive belt I would do for sure if its still the original one, the sweat in the axle joint I would get replaced before winter if its big enough of a sweat... did they mean the boot was sweating?

^^ They probably meant the oil seal at the junction of the Axle and Tranny, when your 'axle is sweating' it usually means the oil seals are on the way out.
