Two ways to remove the screws in above the ashtray:
a very short (called a stubby) #2 philips screwdriver
or the trick I use:
Use a 1/4 drive rachet with a 1/4" socket and use a #2 philips screw bit which happens to be 1/4" and will fit the socket. This method allows you to get a lot of torque on these hard to reach screws.
See my radio/speaker installation guide which applies to the 2000-2004 Legacy/Outback, most of whats in it does apply to earlier models as well.

If you have a magnetic tip or some other trick for keeping hold, use it.

The CD player fits right in where the little junk collector is below the radio. One cable connection for power another to connect to existing radio and it was done. Sweet little install, I wish I had done it along time ago. Had to wait for donors in the junk yard I guess.
I might add the wife (who's daily driver this is) was VERY appreciative (emphasis on very).
