Disconnect the abttery or pull the fuse.
But there's actually no nered, when I did mine I poped the bonnet, went over there with a spanner, got distracted, came back later did the wheel change over, then went to connect the battery and relised I never finished disconnecting it... But if I do it again I;kll disconnect it!
