Is it possible to update the source of a layer within an mxd using arcpy mapping?

I have an mxd which contains a layer (in shapefile format).

I wish to update the path of the shapefile to the path of another shapefile by using a stand alone script.

 

Is this possible? 

I have used arcpy.mapping.AddLayer to find my layer.

I wonder if I can now use .replaceDataSource to update the source of the layer in the mxd?
