i wouldnt think your filter are broken, more like something else major. have you disconnected the battery for 10 mins and then reconnect it?

embarrasingly enough I had a rag stuck in my intake on a sentra and it clogged part of the filter. Just buy 2 new filters and reset the ecu, you should be good after that.
