Exclamation Carrier 58PAV filter components needed

Our 58PAV is missing the front latch lip and the hold down bar for the washable filters that they used to come with. We've "made do" (for the 12 years we've lived in the house) by buying filters that sit on the metal edges of the opening, but have to twist and torque the H out of the filters to get them to go in and sit right. But as soon as the blower kicks on, it lifts and moves the filter out of place (from the suction), causing air/dust to get past the filter. We have to tape the front down to keep it in place.

Are these two parts (filter lip and latch) available and/or is there a better way of fitting filters in the furnace without the hassle we have to go through every season?

Very unlikely. I'd see what I could do with some sheet metal cutting and bending if it were mine.
