No this is not the part I need. The fan bracket has the serpentine belt around it, its a pulley with four screws in it. I will attach a picture.

That's just a pulley on the water pump. The fan is electric.

First I want to say I appreciate your help. Yes I was told the pulley is called a fan bracket. It has gone bad I need to replace it

Yes, that isn't part of the water pump on this one. You will have to remove all the belts and likely the timing cover too.
