LVM commands to replace faulty boot mirror disk

We run hpux 11.00 with Mirror/ux and Online JFS on a N-Class.

Our mirrored boot disk is faulty.
We have a vg volume /dev/vg00
with two disks:
/dev/dsk/c1t6d0 (Still running, status CURRENT)
/dev/dsk/c2t6d0 (stopped working, status STALE)

I have a new disk.
Which order of lvm commands to I apply
to be able to safely remove the faulty disk ?
(Please note that the faulty disk cannot be read anymore, so LVM cannot query its header and subsequent status)

The allocation policy = strict
and we do not use striping.

lvmtab shows this:
[root@orasrv1:]/etc<>>> strings /etc/lvmtab
/dev/vg00
/dev/dsk/c1t6d0
/dev/dsk/c2t6d0

And how after putting in the new disk, do I make it bootable and mirrored to the first one?

Thanks.
