Grout in tiled shower

The grout in our shower is cracked and split on several pieces. Can I scrape out the grout to get all the loose,cracked grout out and then regrout over the existing firm still in place grout. What is the best way to tackle old grout if I want to keep the tile in place? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Kathy.

If the tile is solid and in good shape, they make small hand held grout saws, sold at HD, get out at least 2/3rds of the old, then regrout.

FYI kathy352005,
You might want to review a thread by member EXIT 16 titled Poor Grout Job.
Back when I was writing novels in replying ,(I'm a recovering speed typist and on the road to recovery ) this thread has quite a bit of info regarding how to and what to avoid when dealing with problem grout issues.

Best Of Luck
