Need help with wood siding issue

I ran into a bit of a problem removing siding today. I was attempting to remove a 4 foot section of wood siding and after removing nails all the way up to the edge of the soffit, discovered the piece was still attached. Apparently it is nailed above the soffit. I have not seen this mentioned in any material I have read to prepare for this job, and now I am wondering what to do.
I really don't want to go through the trouble of removing the soffit, and the only thing I can think of is using some kind of saw to cut along the edge of the soffit. Then I could butt the siding up against the other, which would be under a trim piece anyway.
Any thoughts?

Good job perhaps for one of those trim saws used by flooring guys so they can slide the flooring under the trim around the door. I think they are fairly cheap.

I am unfamiliar with a trim saw, but will check it out.
Thanks for the reply.

How about cutting along the edge of the soffit to remove most of the siding and using a sawzall to undercut the soffit to free the remaining piece?
