Welcome to the KIA forums. I personally havn't had any contact with your model truck. Have you got access to an owners manual?, that should have details about the water drain and filter system on the diesel. I'd assume you have to release fuel pressure on the system before you work on the filter. Maybe it would be an idea to get a garage to do the job for you and keep an eye on what they do so you know next time and can do it yourself. Sorry i can't be of more help to you. At least this answer will bump your post up the list and someone else might know more and answer. I had a quick look online and it takes a screw on type filter by the look of it, once you get rid of line pressure it looks like the filter just screws off like an oil filter to replace, most likely found on chassis rail near fuel tank.. see attachment :

Look in front of the battery on the drivers side. there is a second on the fuel rail same side, follow the fuel line from the exposed filter. Both easy access...
