Compresser sound near pass. side battery

Might be a stupid question and I tried searching, but what is that little compresser near the passenger side battery. Not sure what it is, but it sounds like a compresser.

its a very small vacuum pump to run your HVAC mode selector door, and if your truck is a 4wd with the electric switch, it locks your hubs.

Heating, ventilation, ac.
Changes your blend door from floor, vent, and defrost.
Your hubs won't auto engage cause you have a vacuum leak/loss of vacuum to the front hubs. I bet when you auto engage them, the air goes to defrost only.

You have manual hubs. Auto hubs say auto and locked. Consider yourself lucky, one less source of a vacuum leak.

Were should I look for the leak? The hvac controls? The pump is always on. Never turns off. I was just going to buy a new one.
