look like caphead screws to me...simply grab it with a pair of pliers (and using brute force ) twist it out.

when i am trying to get countersunk screws out, i drill a 2mm (.078" to you imperial guys ) hole all the way down the screw, get a stud extractor (like a screw but with opposite threads on) so when you tighten the stud extractor, it loosens the screw ..works every time and no messy chassis

also, what car is it

I keep a couple left hand threaded drill bits in my box, just big enough to barely fit into the holes on the screws I use. They're the same as drill bits but, cut counter-clockwise instead of clockwise.

Put the bit in the drill, set it to go counter-clockwise, and carefully drill into the screw. Typically a couple turns into the screw, the bit catches it right and the screw comes right out.

I've done this probably eight times and it has worked perfectly every time.

That said, from that picture, it looks like the dremel and flat tip screw driver will work fine.
