Ian,
I removed the four screws and with considerable coercion had the pane off the supports (that it was screwed onto).However, it seems too tight to fully remove the window pane and thus have easier access to replace the drip strip. I have previously successfully removed lower panes.
Thanks, Doug

Showing my inexperience again here, but what is a window drip strip? David Tilston, I have the cover that you show - ours was painted and caulked over and that all came off very easy. We have not done every window - one at a time.

The drip strip referred to is the little piece of rubber above the top pane. On most of my windows, it has cracked and half of it has broken off.

Is it really important to have that strip?

Dave, is the channel that your header stril mounted in "crimped" at the ends? On the Boler the header strip channel in NOT crimped but the "J" seal molding (sides & bottom) were crimped, this could be what is holding yours in.

Did anyone with a Trillium have any luck getting the top windows out? They seem to be built slightly different than the Boler windows and "lift" (with much effort) as opposed to slide. And because of my crusty J-seal, I can't lift it out.

Top windows? I have pulled all the windows off one of my Trilliums. Pull them out from the bottom.

If Butyl tape was originally used to seal the window frame you may find you need to run a knife around the frame to get it to lift off.

If your windows are the same as mine [ 1977 surfside ] the windows only come out from one end there is a small flange that will not let it come out the other way . It is helpful to have two people because it has to be at the perfect angle to slip it out . Also on mine the channel for the stripping is crimped at both ends and needs to be opened up to slide out the strip . When installing the new strips it is helpful to dip them in soapy water for lubrication . Good luck Bob

^ That's pretty much how mine are too.
I was able to get the bottom two panes out with relative ease. To get the top panes out, I had to crank them all the way open and stand in the middle of the window with the balls of my feet on frame to yank the top panes out. Suckers were stubborn. I'm going to try to pull out that interior vertical seal out tomorrow before I buff them. I've had some very, very heavy oxidation and putting in the aluminum so I've been using a wire brush on the drill to buff them out. I'm planning to polish them up tomorrow and work on the reinstall.

Slightly off topic. Can I pull the screens out of my trillium without having to remove the whole window? They need to be repaired.

Most screens are spring loaded at the top and to remove - lift the screen up until it clears the bottom channel . The side channels may slide sideways to clear the screen frame or on some , one side may be spring loaded as well in which case the screen is pushed sideways to clear the channel . Hope this helps .

[QUOTE=Doug in Alberta;455477I tried removing the top pane but could not lift it off hinges. If I can only achieve strip swap by taking window apart, please let me down slowly as my windows have already been resealed with new butyl and ply. Thanks![/QUOTE]

Given it's been a few years since this post, I'll let you down slowly.
I'm doing mine now and felt it best to post the answer in this thread

Sorry Ian,
The side window on a Trillium has to come out to safely remove the top jalousie pane. Even with the window out, I had to undo the 4 screws on the header to lift it up high enough to pull the pane out.

The key difference is that the header is attached at a downward angle on the Trill windows - I looked at my boler and it is @ 90 degrees. The angle is what makes it difficult.

Here are some shots of mine with the pieces held together by hand.
The first one is with the top pane out.

The best way to remove the brittle top rubber seal is to heat it up, it will turn soft and flexible and will be easily removed..
