What years?
Most parts stores have a cross reference book they can usually look things up with, but the Kia Karens, not being a US model, might be a bit tough here.
You looking for pads for the Elan?

THe US sephias, I beleive all had rear drum brakes, there was not an option for 4 wheel disc.

Thanks for trying.

It is for my Elan.
I upgraded the front brakes to what Kia advised, which I heard was the same as the Karens, and at that time they came out with the suggested part number for the rear pads.

I will ask my friends in Korea to help match the part numbers with models in the US and see if we can get better options then - thanks.

The front pads look like the ones displayed here for the Carens / Clarus

The rear pads look like these:
0K9A0-26-28Z,KIA,SEPHIA , SPECTRA , CARENS , CITRA, BRAKE PAD - Detailed info for 0K9A0-26-28Z,KIA,SEPHIA , SPECTRA , CARENS , CITRA, BRAKE PAD,BRAKE PAD,0K9A0-26-28Z,KIA,SEPHIA , SPECTRA , CARENS , CITRA, BRAKE PAD,0K9A0-26-28Z on Alibaba.com

My friends in Korea tell me that my Elan brakes are:

Front - Credos 2 / Carens 0K9A0 33 28Z
Rear - Credos 1 0K9A0-26-28Z

Should I look at buying the Yellow Stuff or the Green Stuff ?
Yellowstuff Brake Pads 4000 "R" Series

Sadly those are MAZDA sequence numbers if I recall my MAZDA FORD. Try a Mazda Dealer

K9A0-26-280Z or 028Z 4digit-2digit-3digit is Mazda and Ford(Mazda/Kia) in the case of the Merc CAPRI and Probe/626 Coupe. Some have letters at end too.

K9A0 is the design familiy in this case brakes it's the first car showed up on. Can show up on many models after that with no new numbers assigned to it.
26 is rear or 33 front set in the case of K9D0-33-28Z
280Z or 028Z is the version or vendor or both.

Oil filter on my 1990 Mazda Miata I recall was a NA01-12-300B
NA01 is Miata GenI
12 is engine lube
300B is oil filter version B updated

Kia sequence for replacement parts is always I have seen and cobra can verify this

xxxxx-xxxxx 5digit-5digit like the spin-on oil filter on our souls and others
26300-35503

There are a few exceptions but they are fluids and accesories and hardware and such if so.

All manufacturers have their own sequence system for parts. But some use parts form other makers so you might get cross over like this. Unless they rename them.

Chrysler/Ply/Dodge/Jeep/EAGLE uses their own but did or does use MITSUIBISHI and RENAULT too. And so on.

If you can get the Green Stuff, do it. I have had much luck with the EBC green stuff pads on 3 different vehicles of mine, although not Kias. They made a little noise at times but brake performance was much better.

Further Research

Did some further research adn found just as I said they are MAZDA derived numbers. With no USA apps. Here is why.

They are NOT new KIA CORP nu,bers but OLD KIA corp before HYUNDAI. When it was a FORD/MAZDA DNA arm-wing. Which made the Festiva/Fiesta/Aspire and Courier P/U as well as the MERC Capri conv.

The old still in use KIA 0 K9D0 33 28Z front pads and 0 K9A0 26 28Z rear pads are

Mazda K9D0-33-028 may have Z or not it is hard to tell from the USA and my personal data base.
Mazda K9A0-26-028 may have Z or not.

Kia took which is common practice in mnay marker and mess with teh basic number to KIAize it for use form OEM Mazda parent sequenceing. may get teh Z to make it made form a different vendor then OEM Mazda one too. Like OEM Mazda is ATE and KIA versions are AKI-BONO.

so Kia made it by adding a 0 and then K9D0/K9A0 and then 33/26 and then dropped the 0 and added a Z and got KIA brake pads and such which were based off maybe a Korean market Mazda 121/222/GLC/Protege or some such car.

Hense 0 K9D0 33 28Z and 0K9A0 26 28Z. Best bet is to order form KOREA for that car useing those numbers and upgrade there as you like not here and bite the bullit and pay the outrageious shipping and customs fee to get them here. Or have them bought there for you and shipped here to you FEDEX or UPS non business class pacakge. And hope they do not flag at customs xray and nail you fees that way.
Between a rock and hard place is really the bottom line I think. Welcome to grey market cars in USA. If your Elan was not such an odd ball here it might be a little easier but not much if it did have rare chance of a USA FORD/MAZDA/KIA brake system use somewhere since 1975. A ELAN just gives it a whole new set of fun to deal with. You are really now driving a one off like a 1969 NOVA with drum brakes all around. Gettig shoes might be very interesting for that now too. And custom made useing the old SHOE metal hard part and relined with new friction material. The same might be true for you ELAn adn its disc pads. Reuse the old pad backing plates and reline the friction material at a CUSTOM race car brake shop. But might be cheaper to pay the Korea to USA FEDEX/UPS and get the right stuff faster first time. And less effort too. Order sit and wait put on. No trial and error and grinding the first set they make for you.

Greenstuff. Unless your really gonna work those brakes, the yellow are overkill. I used the reds on my sephia, gripped real good,but had to work them hot before they really grabbed.

I'm not familiar with the range of pads, and my thoughts were to get a soft compound that would provide max grip hot and cold, even if it meant I needed to change pads more frequently than normal.

I'm going to my vacation home soon, where I store the Elan, and will get the part numbers of the spare standard brake pad sets that I have in stock, and photograph them, and see if it helps find a match.
