    It's been a LONG time since I had my 97 Legacy, so I may be wrong about this.

    I believe that in the trim panel around the shifter, in the upper left corner, there is a little square access point. It's about 1/2" (12mm) square. It has a small cover which has to be pried out. Under there is an interlock bypass "switch". You may be able to get it out of park by pushing that mechanism.

    But this doesn't really explain why it's stuck.

    Good luck!
