Recently moved into a new home and am trying to get new furnace filters. The house has this unit: https://www.ecomfort.com/Goodman-ARUF49C14/p58566.html , which looks like its called an Air Handler.
I found the filter cover at the bottom of the unit but there doesn't appear to be a filter currently in it and the area is blocked by some piping.

My two questions are:
It looks like the angle is pretty tough to get a filter in there, can I somewhat bend the filter to get it in? Any other ideas on how to get it in?
What filter size does the unit take? I don't see anything on the unit itself and when I read the manuals, I see different info.
This manual says
"When using the factory filter rails, a nominal 16x20x1”, 20x20x1” or 24x20x1” (actual dimension must be less than 23-½”x20”) filter can be installed on a B, C and D cabinet respectively (the cabinet size is the seventh letter of the model number)."
However, the first link I posted lists the filter size as 19" x 20".
Appreciate any guidance.
