Mazda 6 V6 error codes P2189 P2177 P2179 P2187

I recently changed my air filter and couple of weeks later the above codes and check engine light came on, the car has 66K miles (2005 wagon model). I the codes mean "lean on both bank one and two".

Then noticed that the air box to inlet manifold was split, used duck tape and sealed it up and cleared the codes and now no issues.

In case anyone else has this issue, looks like that plastic/rubber accordion bit gets brittle over time.

New ones go for about $50 online.
