A fan pulley bracket, also known as a fan bracket or fan pulley assembly, serves as a support structure for the engine's cooling fan and houses the pulleys necessary for the operation of the accessory drive belt system. The fan pulley bracket is securely attached to the engine block or another fixed part of the engine. One of the primary components connected to the fan pulley bracket is the engine cooling fan. This fan helps regulate the engine's operating temperature by drawing air through the radiator to dissipate heat.
Maintenance and replacement of fan bracket
Over time, the fan pulley bracket can wear out due to exposure to engine heat and mechanical stress. Car owners should regularly inspect the fan bracket for signs of wear, damage, or misalignment. Listen for noises coming from the fan or bracket during operation, check belt tension and lubrication should also be parts of fan bracket regular maintenance. If you notice any damage, wear, or misalignment during inspections, replace the affected components promptly. This may include the fan bracket itself, the cooling fan, or any damaged pulleys.
