Mud Bed Wall - How to repair??

I have a shower with Mud Bed walls. The final tile in the corner is approximately 1 inch wide. The full tile is 4 in. I noted a crack in two of the 1 inch tile going up the corner. I removed them and found a crack in the mortar bed under neath the tiles.

Can I repair "fill" this crack and reinstall the tiles? If so, what product should i use to repair the crack with?

Thanks,

Jerry

How wide is the crack?

Do you see any wire lath?

Have you had some major settling that would cause this crack?

Can you post a picture?

Welcome, Jerry. Or JA. Which do you prefer?

I think what Davy's hinting at is that you shouldn't have those cracks. And Davy's hung a lot of mud shower walls.
