I am trying to replace the old drip pans on my gas cooktop, but am not sure how to take it apart. I would like to know how to do this, since it seems straight forward after gaining enrty.

Looks like if you remove the grate and the burner cap-- both just lift off-- the drip pans then just lift out, too. If it's not wanting to move, it may be stuck down by old, bake-on grease.

NO, the drip pans don't just lift out!!!! This is a sealed burner cooktop with glass surface.

To remove the drip pans you have to remove the three screws around each burner head, with the very high probability that the screws are going to break off when you try to remove them.

EDITED TO ADD:
Looks like this maybe a little different then I'm familiar with but still the drip pans aren't just going to lift out, if not the three screws around each burner head it appears the drip pans may have studs coming off the bottom that you have to take the nuts off from underneath to release the drip pans.
