Noisy Shimano 105 shifters

When I bought my bicycle in 2001 I noticed right away some noise coming from the shifters when riding on rough pavement. The mechanic said that he could not do anything. Now, 18,000 kms later they are getting much noisier and I am thinking of replacing them. Any idea if Shimano fixed the problem on the 105 shifters. If not, I am thinking of going back to bar end shifters.

Thanks
