Is the radiator fan electric?

(2001 Volkswagen Passat)
in Dillon, CO on September 09, 2011
I am going to repair the fan on the passat 2.8 V6 myself. I just want to confirm that the radiator fan is electric (it looks like it is)?
Any particular things I should know or is it straight forward?

By repair do you mean replace it and why? If not working then why is it not? Frozen motor or related sensors and relays?

A few of the blades have broken off. Ok, never mind the initial question; it is belt driven. How hard is it to change it over to an electric fan.

Electric I believe there is one or two bolts on the top and slide into a slot at the bottom. Make sure test the fan before replacing not to cheap.
