Mouldy Bath Tub Plastic Silcone Seal Trim

I've got 2 baths where the triangle shaped plastic trim has lots of mould around the silicone seal.
Looks similar to the one in B and Q below.

I've tackled the 1 bath and cleaned up the silicone. So now I'm not sure what to do. During the clearing up some of the plastic trim has come away from the tiled wall. I could just try and fill up the small gaps with silicone and seal the rest of the trim with silicone, or perhaps I could pull off the old plastic trim and re-attach, or perhaps buy new and start over.

Any recommendations much appreciated.

I am not a fan of those strips. As long as the tiles are close ( 3 or 4 mm max) to the bath rim , I would just apply a silicone sealant from tile to bath . can you post pics of yours , preferably in close up shot ? Sounds like you will have to remove the trim that is no longer bonded to the tiles anyway ,to replace with new if thats the way you want to go.
