Comparing DB2076 to DB2088 for Hyundai and Kia rear
Sep. 18, 2015
The Bendix disc pad DB2088 (Figure 1) was released in 2012 for the Hyundai Sonata rear, and on several Hyundai and Kia vehicles.
It was found some of the new applications used a slightly different pad, that was the same size and shape , which has an extra semi-pierce (lug) on the Inner Backing Plate designed to prevent the caliper piston rotating when the park-brake is applied.
The Bendix part number DB2076 (Figure 2) has been introduced to cater for the applications that require the extra lug.
To help easily distinguish between these two similar pads we have introduced carton labels for both parts with the image of the pad and the list of vehicle applications. With a comment added to show the difference, please see the example labels below.
The initial shipment of DB2076 General CT have been branded incorrectly on the pad as DB2088, and they do have the centre semi-pierce (lug). These pads have already been fitted with their wear sensors we have attached a label to the outside of the shrink-wrapped set as shown above. They will be boxed in the normal General CT cartons with the correct DB2076 label.
The Hyundai Sonata changed from using the DB2088 to the DB2076 in June 2010, and the Kia Optima could use either pad depending on what type of park brake system is fitted.
