Are rusted drip pans considered normal wear and tear? [I've included a pic of the guidelines by the landlord]?
Do I need to replace them myself before moving out?
It's impossible for me to clean it as it's so rusted it makes a hole when I scrub it hard.

If they are just rusty due to age then yes they are. You should not be charged for those unless they are burned or some other damage you legitimately caused.

No, rusty or otherwise dirty drip pans are not standard wear and tear. Go ahead and replace them before you move out.Source(s): FL landlord

Landlords can make up any list they want, or any claims they want, but whether or not they are legal is another question. A drip pan under a refrigerator or a liner under a stove are going to wear out over time...
It looks like rust and oxidation, normal aging, and not something caused by your neglect.
These are relatively inexpensive items.
As for your landlord's list, I would consider missing or damaged window screens normal wear & tear. Wind, rain, etc. will cause this, not a tenant's neglect.

They're electric stove drip pans.
I've included a pic of the worst of them.
I've tried bleach, baking soda and white vinegar.
