Removing nailed on pegboard

Not sure if this is the best forum, but this IS in my garage...

I'm doing some rewiring and there's some romex I need access to behind my workbench. Which, of course, has pegboard behind it. It's nailed in with a variety of nails, and nailed on good. I can't get behind the nail with a hammer or crowbar.

Any suggestions on how to remove the pegboard? Preferably without trashing it?

Try cutting the head of the nail off with dremal and cut off wheel. will do some damaged but the board may be saved. then can cut the nail flush with stud or pull with pliers.

After talking to a coworker I wound up using a drill to drill off the head... I could have used a Dremel as you said, but wanted to try and minimize the damage to the peg board.

Worked fine, either pried out the nails or nailed them flush with the wood.

Appreciate the help though!
