You will see cracks in the pictures. These cracks are deep in the middle of the plastic, and the plastic is still sturdy as if there were no cracks. If you have it repaired for the noise, it will not cost much more to have the housing replaced, but I assure you, it doesn't need it. Whats good about this model is the wires wont rot and crack like the Excal II has been known to do.
