raid 5 and bad drive bay

Hi

Got an old ML370 box with three disks (Ultra3 & Raid 5) reporting disk failure in slot 0. Replaced supposedly failed disk with a spare of same size but ultra320 and still got same failed error. Tried hot-swapping and shutdown replace but neither worked. Moved the new disk to an available drive bay on same server and it got detected. This tells me the slot 0 drive bay is gone. Will it be possible to regenerate the raid 5 by sticking the old/new disk on the available good drive bay?
Thanks
T
