Drain your fuel filter, it's full of water.

Don't have any pics, I'm in the USA, Kia's are not made with diesel engine's here. I'm sure there would be a pic or 2 in your owner's manual.

Thanks Bruno. Found it now.

Slackened off the bottom and some water did drain out - not a huge amount though. Didnt notice any bulb on the side though.

Drove this am. Light still on.

Probably just buy a new filter seems easier.
