Special situation in removing laminate

I am planning on removing the laminate from my kitchen & replacing it with Marmoleum. There are two areas which I'm unsure as to how I should proceed. When the kitchen was remodeled the two, tall refrigerator panels & a panel on one side of the dishwasher is resting directly on the laminate. In the case of the dishwasher panel, the granite is resting on top of the panel. No more than 8" of any panel is exposed, the rest is hidden. The laminate is 12mm thick & the Marmoleum is 2.5mm.

Any suggestions on how to handle this situation?

You can probably cut around these with a toe kick saw. I believe they rent these at most tool rental shops. http://www.tools4flooring.com/crain-...A#.UPQYco7TLHg. Or if this won't cut closely enough, then maybe try cutting this with a multi tool such as a fein multimaster. Or if these panels are also attached to something else such as a cabinet and not solely supported by the floor, then you could also probably cut it close and pound these pieces out of there. I have similar panels around the fridge in my house and when I replaced the flooring, I pounded these pieces out.
