how to remove a section of vinyl soffit vent

My front porch is basically under my roof and the ceiling of the porch is vinyl soffit venting about 5 ft wide panels of it... well the space above it I need to get into (its a fairly big space about 4 ft high on one end and 5 ft wide......) to fix an insulation problem on the far end of it.... how do I remove a section or two of that to get into the attic space? its installed like soffit vent normally is on the overhanging area of a roof..... just never had to remove it before.... thanks!

how to remove a section of vinyl soffit vent

look where the panel ends in the j channel,find where the panels lock together,take a screw driver,or ice pick at the panel end and''peel'' it away the entire length

that will expose the fasteners of the previous panel,remove as many as needed
