Soffit Vents? New Siding Project
 
I am in the process of installing new vinyl siding. My existing soffit is wood with cut in vents every 6 feet or so. They are covered with metal vent covers that insect screens on the back side.

The question I have is should the vent covers be taken off prior to placing vented soffit under them?

I would recommend pulling entire old soffit down for for maximum ventilation in the new soffit when put back up.

Agreed, that would give you way more venting and once the vinyl goes up the old wood that's up there will be useless.
