New Housewrap Over Old Windows

I am re-siding second floor dormers, and plan to add rubber membrane and Tyvek around existing (flanged) windows. I do not want to remove the windows.

a.) Would the correct order in this instance be: 1. existing window flange, 2. drip cap, 3. membrane over the flange, 4. house-wrap? If so, is the housewrap secured to the window?

b.) The existing felt paper on the sheathing is a joke (not even overlapped), but at least it extends under the window flange. Is there any value to leaving it in place under the Tyvek?
