The video is for an Optima, but the same concept applies to the Sorento. I personally did not use the fishing line or floss though.

For the rear, I heated up the badge with a hairdryer, and using a small flathead screwdriver wrapped in a microfiber towel, start prying up one side and work your way across. Will probably need to hit the badge with heat a few times as you work across it.

For the steering wheel, pull your horn fuse first. Then cover the steering wheel with a towel to protect from scratches. This badge has prongs that hold it in, and can be somewhat difficult to get off. Just be patient and pry it off slowly. No need to heat this one.

For the wheels, just clean them, dry them, and stick the new emblems on top of the KIA one.

jayongmall.net is where I got mine. Just make sure you specify the sizes you need. If I remember correctly, the wheels and steering wheel are 60mm. All the sizes are listed on the site.
