Hi. I have a volume group (let's say) vg_data.
It consists from /dev/sdd5
I added               sdc5

Now I want to remove (free) sdd7 and you is to for RAID partition.

What are the commands (ordered) I need to perform? I failed to find clear howto.

vg-data has only one partition, total size is over 1TB, free space is 
about 500GB so there is a plenty or room.
