I think this is not correct (it caught my eye because I also have the most trouble remembering this step).
"vgremove" removes an entire volume group.
Instead "vgreduce" is needed here (evict the PV (ie. the partition) from the VG).
Afterwards "pvremove" may be invoked on the partition to "wipe the label on [the] device so that LVM will no longer recognise it as a physical volume".
