remove the ring from the tank that holds the sending / fuel pump unit into the tank.

I have never heard of something sensable as an access hatch. On a truck it's sometimes easier to lift the truck bed off of the truck instead of lowering the tank but you obviously don't have that luxury. I wouldn't cut a hole in your vehicle either because not only are you creating a week point, but a place for water and dirt intrusion along with a fresh start for rust. Most likely the fuel pump is a submersable pump and accessed by lowering the fuel tank very slowly until you can reach in and disconnect the fuel lines. Make sure you open the gas cap and disconnect the battery to depresurise the fuel. Don't lower it to far or you will snap the lines off. You will also need to disconnect the electrical connection at the pump. I use a floor jack and a 2x6 the length of the tank or as close as possible to distrubute the load and support / lower the tank down slowly.

just finished one on my 99 cougar... remove the back seat, take out the rubber ring that has the fuel pump wires running through it. on the end of the wires is a clip that has to be removed before you can unplug it... it is metal... you just pull straight out to the side and it will come out... then remove the plug from top of fuel pump.... then feel directly to the right is a nother plug that has to be unplugged.... then with a long screwdriver (flat head) and a hammer knock the keeper ring clock wise to get it out from under the tabs.... slide the rings down the fuel lines... NOTE: THESE LINES ARE NOT TO BE REMOVED..... Pick fuel pump housing up out of tank and remove the pump, and replace with new one.... you may have to drop the fuel tank a little to pick it up out of tank... that's easy too... crawl up under it make sure it is on jack stands and the emergency brake pulled, and in park.. chalk the front wheels just too make sure it doesn't move.. then on the front of the tank there is two bolts one on each side.. remove them and tank will drop down enough to do job.... hope this helps
