Hi,

Can anyone tell what this plastic strip is between my UPVC window and window sill ?

Is it required ?
Its looking a bit yellowed, could I remove it, foam the gap and fill and paint over ?

Do you mean the quadrant piece? if so you'd be best removing it and replacing it. It's a five minute job.

They're fitted to fill gaps between window and cill, as above easy to replace, you could use flat bar if you don't like the quadrant.

As Argyll and Ktuludays says

you might be able to get a single length if thats all you need from your local builders/ DIY eg wickes do some I think its 3.29 per length, fix with silicone after removing the old and cleaning surface
As a guide they fix some in this video from about 4mins onwards
