    Hi there, we've recently moved into a new house - there are some good new-ish upvc windows but the wide upvc trim and internal sills which don't look great so we want to replace them with pine versions. The trim has come out quite easily but it seems like the internal sill is screwed in somehow (I can just seen the screw behind the bottom piece of trim).

    Can anyone help with how best to remove the upvc internal sill? I assume I will have to remove the bottom horizontal strip but it seems like it's part of the window and I don't want to break the window frame! Or not be able to get it back on. I've attached some pics.

    I've been searching on youtube and haven't found anything.

    Thank you!!
