Remove dryer vent

Related to my other post.

What's the best way to seal up the old vent at the exterior wall?

Vinyl siding over insulation panel, over old siding

I think I can get matching vinyl. Do I just patch with wood on the inside and run a new piece of siding outside or should I get some housewrap and tape as well?

What are the layers? Match the layers with the same materials and tape any WRB or insulation to keep it air tight. Otherwise, just fix the holes and replace the siding.
