Default Cracked Mortar Replacement for Top Course of Soldier Brick

Due to settling of my carport slab, the mortar between the upper course of brick (soldier brick) on the exterior load-bearing wall of the foundation has become cracked. I have stabilized the foundation with helical piles and cement.

Do I need to remove as much of the old mortar as possible before retooling with new mortar?
