Bathroom Exhaust Fan

My current bathroom exhaust fans are over 20 years old, dirty, and getting louder and louder. I need help in removing the old exhaust fans and replacing the new ones. Is there a way to remove the old ones and install the new ones without going to the attic?

Also, the old one has only the fan. I bought one with a fan and light. I do not want to do any rewiring, so can I just have both fan and light work with one switch? Would I just wire the two whites to one incoming wire and the blue (light) and black (fan) to the other incoming wire? Thank you.

If you want both the light and the fan to come on together, that wiring will work. Without knowing how it is exactly mounted , I can't say the exact procedure to remove it. it might be quite possible to remove it without going to attic, if it is screwed/nailed inplace from inside the enclosure, hopefully that is the case, and the new one can be mounted the same way. Make sure the exhaust vent is hooked up when installing the new.
