Yeap that is your vacuum pump. Are you having any issues with your air just blowing out of the defrost or any 4x4 issues?

well you may not need a pump most likely the problem is just a vacuum leak, when mine runs non stop I just wiggle the fittings and check for leaks and all is well for 3 months or so then do repeat

Your vaccum pump will not run non-stop because your hub seals are shot. You do have a vaccum leak if your vent selector stays on defrost all of the time though. We have that established. Do make sure you have a good connection and no burnt wires on your vaccum pump. Check all of your vaccum lines for dry rot or broken fittings or even disconnected fittings. Just do the process of elimination.
