The below CD changer installation instruction is written specifically for the Porsche 993 model using the factory CD changer mounting bracket.  Aftermarket CD changer installation may differ.

Below diagram shows the exact measurement and placement of the holes to drill for the CD changer bracket.  The factory shop manual calls for the use of rivets to secure the bracket for mounting the CD changer, but self tapping screws will work equally well.  Use the CD changer mounting bracket to reference the pilot hole and drill the correct hole size according to the size of the self tapping screw you will be using.  Do not mount the bracket at this time.
