Not quite sure which part you are referring to. If the CRT would be cracked it would not be functional. Take pictures of the part/area that is cracked and post them with your question. It will allow us to see what you see.

Sounds to me like your case is cracked around the CRT. I'd pull the shell and just push it back into place then flow some superglue in the crack to hold it in place.
