Replacing old aluminum windows
I have wood siding and aluminum windows. I don't think you can just get replacement windows and slide them in without tearing up the siding on the outside. Am I correct on this? Any suggestions on how to replace these windows without tearing up the siding?

Can you take a picture of the outside.

I have seen installers with Milguard windows to a retrofit with a wood trim on a house that had hardie siding then the trim. I was not doing it, just house sitting while they working.

It is possible to use the existing frames as stops for new vinyl replacement windows and save on installation labor.
