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.

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.
