Replace system disk on 4.0G

Dont usually do this so need some help. I have a blown disk which is one part of a mirrored pair. and part of a volume. The disk is showing detached in LSM ( white ).

I need to replace the disk is it just a case of using voldiskadm and selecting replace failed or removed disk?

Do i need to disklabel the replacement disk first? or does voldiskadm take care of all of that.

Any help would be most gratefully received
