All you need is a guide that doesn't let the raw cable eat through the carbon on the shell.

Specialized has similar guides, so that is a place to start.
Get one with the finger guide too long then just use an x-acto knife to cut it back.

If all you can find is a bolt on, go to your local plumbing supply or well stocked hardware store and get an appropriate sized vinyl threaded bolt and nut to fasten it.

Don't be concerned about an exact fit. The shifter pulls the slack, not the FD spring. So you are probably going to have to improvise.

Many LBS's keep parts boxes with various sized guides. So you should be able to find something close.

FWIW, have you bothered to send Trek an email?
