Mercedes Air Intake Inlet Duct tube question

I have a 2010 E550 and was getting ready to change out the air filters. When I started to remove the air intake duct tubes I noticed that both were cracked and had holes in them at the "bellows" side by the airbox. Both were underneath so perhaps heat made them brittle? The p/n on it is A272 094 12 11 and I guess there is a left and right p/n. Can I buy just that plastic bellows part or do I have to buy the whole unit? I found what appears to be the correct whole tubes but they have p/n2730902682 for the right and 2730902582 for the left. Can someone chime in... looks like something that would happen after a few years and heat. Thanks!

Duct tape, or Black Gaffer's tape (if color is an issue). These are not high tech parts.

Thanks for the replies! I was afraid to use tape to seal them. I also wondered if the leaks would affect the intake air signal. konigstiger thanks again for your help!

My S430 had duct tape on these tubes for the 40K miles that I put on the car and no issues whatsoever.

I have used aftermarket air inlets on my 2010 550. Been fine for about 2 years already.(and it was only about 30 bucks where originals are about 80 per one for a used one)
Had the same issue as you.
