SOURCE: Fuel Filter
If you have the 6 cylinder engine, you only have one filter in the tank attached to the sender module. If you have a 4 cylinder, you have one filter in the tank and the inline is located under the chassis on the left side of the fuel tank.

The fuel filter is located in the fuel tank, pump removal is required to replace. There is an inspection cover behind the front seats on the floor to gain access to the pump. stupid idea. but whats not stupid about kia.

Hi on this car the fuel filter is in the fuel pump so the pump as a whole will be replaced. To get to it you will have to remove the rear seat bottom cushion. There are 2 12m bolts inbetween the top cushion and the bottom. remove them and then on the front of the bottom cushion there will be 2 plastic clips pull up on them and the cushion will pop up and you will see the acc panel for the pump.

Follow the (usually steel) fuel lines from the engine bay underneath the vehicle all the way back to the fuel tank. fuel lines may resemble brake lines, they usually look very much alike. Find your fuel rail, it connects to fuel injectors, and then follow it to find the fuel lines that go to the fuel tank.
You may have to remove plastic covers from underneath the vehicle, one kia I worked on the fuel filter was halfway up the side of the fuel tank and we had to remove the whole undercarriage cover from underneath the vehicle to follow the fuel lines to it.
I assume you have the new fuel filter, so you know what you are looking for, if you don't it looks like a can with a fuel line coming out of either side of it. Similar to what an engine oil filter looks like, usually quite a bit smaller though.
Hope this helps :)
