Replacing Garage Window

I have a wooden window in my garage that needs to be replaced. I discovered it was rotten when i went to paint it. The window is approx 32 x 27. I removed the interior trim & discoverd that the header & side jams have wood rot from carpenter ants. I had planned on just removing to old window & putting in a replacement so I wouldnt have to mess with any exterior work. If i replace the header & side jambs can i just fill the opening with a replacement window? The ants are long gone & it appeares that the previous owner put filler pieces of wood to nail the window into the header & side jambs because the fillers are solid wood. Thank you.

If you completely remove the window you would want to use a window with a nail fin.

Replacing garage window

So if I replace the header & jambs you would not recommend a replacement window? The sill is solid.

If you are talking about repairing the window frame and stops, then yes, you could put a replacement window inside of it.
