The fuel filter is inside the tank in a canister that holds the fuel pump. Contrary to popular belief the 2003 Kia Sorento has a fuel filter that you can get at your dealership. (I purchased one today at my dealer for appox $46 vs the $320 for the whole new pump). It was the only model year that had a replaceable filter.
To find the filter:
Open back passenger door and pull bottom of the seat forward. You will see a square metal plate that has a wiring harness attach. Use a Phillips screwdriver and remove the 4 screws. Unhook the gas lines, and 3 electrical plugins. Unscrew the 4 bolts holding the pump canister and slowly remove the canister from the tank pulling up. Inside this canister us the pump and the filter etc.
You will need to get a diagram from there to remove and replace unless mechanically inclined, although it is fairly simple to do.
