Here is my original question:

I have a bootable disk which is now reporting that a slice needs
here is the output of "metastat" for that particular slice:

d5: Mirror
    Submirror 0: d15
      State: Needs maintenance 
    Submirror 1: d25
      State: Okay         
    Pass: 1
    Read option: roundrobin (default)
    Write option: parallel (default)
    Size: 8392072 blocks

d15: Submirror of d5
    State: Needs maintenance 
    Invoke: after replacing "Maintenance" components:
                metareplace d5 c0t0d0s5 <new device>
    Size: 8392072 blocks
    Stripe 0:
        Device              Start Block  Dbase State        Hot Spare
        c0t0d0s5                   0     No    Last Erred   

d25: Submirror of d5
    State: Okay         
    Size: 8392072 blocks
    Stripe 0:
        Device              Start Block  Dbase State        Hot Spare
        c0t1d0s5                   0     No    Okay         

I'm thinking there must be command which I should be able to run to fix
this problem. I do have a mirror disk which seems to be ok.
Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

And Here is the answer to it:

All I needed to do was to re-establish a mirror on the same disk
by issuing the following command:

metareplace -e d5 c0t0d0s5
