You don't.

IIRC the fuel filter is on the bulkhead on a 200 the same as a ZR, You just need to undo the two connections and replace

changed mine a couple of weeks ago disconnected battery for safety`s sake but thats it just uncouple the pipes top and bottom check flow arrow dosen`t work wrong way as one of my mates found out on his! make sure you got plenty of rags under or half a 2 liter bottle cos it holds more fuel than you think.

disconection of a power source is just safe workin practice safe not sorry is always good workin policy only takes one spark especially with fuel which is highly flammable and so is its vapour even when the engine is of there are loads of wires carryin power all of which are perfectly capable of bein bared and at risk of stray arc`s with the battery uncoupled these wires are not live so far less risk!
