Default Bad BEC in HPI Vorza ESC!

Was going to play with my HPI Vorza today, but it stoped after 2 beeps from the ESC. then it died.

Found out that if i disconnected the steering Servo, i got power to the reciver and the ESC light up. But stil no Beep's.

I had to open up the ESC to se whats wrong with it. There was some dust/gravel inside so i clean that away and found out that a component is cracked(223 T)
Se picture:




I have connected batteries to the reciver and everything lights up and the ESC plays the Beep's. Everything works, but i do not what it to be like this.

Do anyone think it will work if i replace the cracked component? And what type of component is this?
I have a degree in electronics (computer/office machines), so i can work a soldering iron

Link to the component ??

I would talk to HPI about that before you do anything to void a warranty.

I would guess that once the ESC is opened, the warranty is gone.
