Removing Vinyl Siding

I need to remove vinyl siding without damage since I'd like to put it back. I need to remove the very top piece just before the eave and any piece below a window. I'm doing this to hole saw holes into the wood so I can blow in insulation. I'll close the hole and put the vinyl siding back.

Any tricks, tips or suggestions?

tia,

Blow the insulation from the inside.

hi
i replace a window and i only remove the siding i needed.

here how
get an old flat srewdriver you dont use.
i just bend the tip at a 90 degree and i just slide it under the lip that lock the sideing to the other and pull down.
It will unclip and then you just lift it
to put back simply place the siding where it clip before and with the palm of your open hand slap it on the way down it will clip back in place
hope this helps

cheers

Buy the siding tool previously mentioned and here's how to remove a piece of vinyl siding in the middle of a wall.
1) using the siding tool unhook the bottom lip of the siding piece(s) ABOVE the one you want to remove. This gives you access to nails on the piece to be removed.
2) remove nails
3) remove siding by hitting downward on the nail strip (or use siding tool)
TO REINSTALL
1) snap siding on lower siding piece
2) renail strip on - here it is a good idead to use old nail holes to be sure you are installing exactly at original heigth
3) use the siding tool to hook the above piece(s) on replaced piece

Really not that difficult, but suggest you do not do this in very cold weather.
Vinyl siding will get very brittle and may crack or snap.
Good luck.
