Before you physically removed the disk, you were supposed to have done pvremove.
you can try pvdisplay/pvscan and see if these disks are displayed there, before trying a pvremove on them again.
I assume the said disks were properly remove from any lv,vg that you had.

some time ago I removed some physical disks from a server and now I'm
still getting dmesg messages like:

sd 0:2:2:0: SCSI error: return code = 0x00040001
end_request: I/O error, dev sdc, sector 0

And all lvm tools still grumbel about that disks too:

/dev/sdb: read failed after 0 of 4096 at 0: Eingabe-/Ausgabefehler
  /dev/sdb: read failed after 0 of 4096 at 1746969493504:

How may I tell the lvm and the system, that it is ok that this disk do
not exist any more?
