The factory procedure is to remove the fuel tank which is fairly easy I believe except for disconnecting the fuel lines at the top of the tank. Not sure how difficult this is. The other option is to cut a whole in the floor behind the passenger's seat (left side of car when looking from front). Cut the carpet and underlay on three sides, about 8 inches square and fold up towards seat. You will see the metal floor is corrugated. Use an angle grinder with thin cut off disc to cut along the upper edge of the corrugation so there is no chance of cutting the tank. The cross cut has some potential to cut the tank but it is something like an inch below the metal so if you just cut through it you should be OK. Fold up towards seat. On my 98 the line connectors had a collar that you pushed back to release the pipe. These were quite rusty and I was lucky to be able to reuse them. You can turn the lock ring with large slip joint pliers or tap it around with hammer and screw driver. This is all from memory from two years ago so my apologies if I have something wrong. Good luck.

In defence I do plan to drop the tank on my 2000 but the 98 was not worth preserving. Just giving the options. Good quality fuel pumps can be purchased for less than $100USD and installed in the frame. Unless the sender is bad I would go that way.

A sheet of rubber glued down with polyurethane glue will seal those narrow cuts. You also have a rubber mat and carpet over the slots. I'd worry more about the sealing rubber on the rear hatch.
