How do I properly replace a bad drive from a mirrored pair?

This is SBS 2003 on a 2006-model Dell PowerEdge (not sure what the exact server model is right now). the server has  ahardware-based RAID mirror and the second disk, DISK1, is being replaced due to bad sectors. In order to swap the broken drive with the new drive, do I need to:

1) Break or remove the mirror in Windows?
2) Do anything other than hot-swaop the drive if its hot-swapable?
3) Break or remove the mirror in the Dell onboard disk managment utility?
4) Face west before removing the drive?

I would take something like Acronis and take a complete clone of the setup. Then swap the drives.
