You don't actually have to get in the dash. If it comes with a standard cassette like the Aussie model does then there is a nut holding it in a bracket attached to the dash framework at the back of the stereo. You can see and feel this if you crawl under the dash next to the pedals. You can easily get a spanner in there to undo the nut. Once undone gently push the old system out until it is possible to get a good hold of it from the front then gently slide it out. Took me 5 minutes to do on mine.

Where is aux outlet in Honda accord 2004?

If you're talking about the auxiliary power output (cigarette lighter), in my 2003 accord its in the center console. I believe this is optional so yours may not have it. If you're talking about the auxiliary input for the stereo, there isn't one easily accessible. There is an auxiliary input, but it's on the bottom of the stereo, so to access it you have to disassemble the dash and use a special device. See here for both:
