I'm replacing siding on my house from cedar to fiber board and when I remove the old siding, the tyvek paper will have holes from the old nails. Should I replace the Tyvek paper with new or are these holes fine in the old paper with the fiber cement siding going over them?

Thanks

I forgot to mention that there is 1" foam behind the Tyvek paper too that is staying.

Thanks

You need to remove the Tyvek.

It should not be there in the first place.

Tyvek should not be used over rigid foam insulation. Placing Tyvek over rigid foam renders the Tyvek useless.

Remove the Tyvek and install your fibered cement board directly over the foam.

Nothing else is required.

Thanks for the reply. Sould I be concerned about the small holes left by the nails from the wood siding that was removed? It will all be covered anyway by the new siding anyway I guess.

No, you have no need to worry about any nail holes.
