I am trying to replace a widespread faucet in the toilet, and I cannot remove the brackets that are holding down the faucet and handles. Please take a look at the bracket that is holding down a handle.

You've already removed the large nut, so moving that "U" bracket back and forth should release it and let it fall off, making removing the faucet possible.

There were no nuts originally holding down the U-shape brackets. Here is what it looks like for all three pieces of faucet that are being clamped down by the brackets. The smooth surface over the threaded handle pipe is part of the bracket. So, it does not look like the design would allow nuts holding down the brackets.

From the top side you probably need to remove the handles and unscrew the escutcheon trim rings. Then it all falls down, out of the holes
