cracked grout

I have a small (3x3) entryway where the grout has cracked and broken up. If I clean up all of the broken and cracked grout, can I regrout over the top of the old stuff or does it all need to be replaced? Thanks

You could, but cracked grout is an indication that your subfloor has too much flex in it and the cracks will therefore reappear if the subfloor is not addressed as well.
