    There's condensation inside the glass. The house was built about 17 years ago.

    Can the pane be taken out of the frame and resealed?

    The double glazed unit can be taken out of the frame and replaced with new.....the old ones can't be resealed.

    So bead removed, pane removed then new pane fitted and sealed in?

    In a nutshell, that's about it....but take great care removing the fragile glass beads!
    Generally I get glaziers in for this, they come and measure up and have their own suppliers for new beads should they be needed.

    Hi, had a similar problem,
    Found a local glazier, removed the entire opening window (just a few screws to release the hinges) delivered it to him in the morning, phone call received the same afternoon to collect the window with a new sealed unit, and refitted by myself.
    Quicker and cheaper!
    Just a though, take photos, and mark where the hinges fit.
    Regards
