My parents house has plaster and lath for all the walls and ceilings.
It is a ranch, with no crawl space. Under normal circumstances using
drywall, I know how to pull the wiring and install the fan. My concern
is what to do with the plaster ceiling and how to route the exhaust and
wiring with no crawl space to navigate.
Am I stuck ripping out the ceiling?
TIA for any advice.

i just replaced two. first get a panasonic, i got mine from the
williams(www.rewci.com/panfv07whisf.html). one i could get into the attic
the second i had to cut the ceiling do to the slope and my fat ass. i used
metal duct 4 inch and ran them to the soffit out side. cut out the soffit
enough so both extended a little past it. someone else can answer the
electric question, mine was a replacement. used a sawzall with a metal blade
for small teeth. just make sure you empty the fan outside the house not in
the attic. if the bath is on the out side wall you could mount it high in
the wall and directly outside.
