Just cut the flanges off with a sawzall and screw the housing through the side into the joist. Easy peasy.

Wish it would say that in the instructions my luck the can will separate on others we could just bend the flange would mention it in the instructions not wanting to take a sawsall to a 250.00 fan this one is not designed for retrofit and with the exhaust port would need to cut more drywall

Check out Delta Breez:

If that won't meet your customer's needs you can always go with a Panasonic Whisperfit EZ and a humidity sensor wall control.

I usually am able to leave mounting flange alone, like you say cutting them may make can fall apart.

If enough room above, turn can 90 degrees and slide up thru hole, then orient correctly and drop down to mounting position
