Default dirt slipping under air filter

     

I have an 08' 300SX and have been having a lot of issues with keeping dirt out of my engine. Dirt pulls through the filter and carrier on the lower left side. I have tried everything from different filter brands, greasing the filter and even half that side of the airbox. Has anyone ever had any issues with this before? Hoping a new carrier will solve the issue cause its bad!

Check for warpage and cracks. Really would help to see a pic.
