The dealer breakdown of recommended repairs only stated Front Vacuum Pump" without reference to which system. Breaks are working fine. Windshield washer fluid system is failing, so maybe it is a reference to wiper fluid pump. I'm just trying to ID all vacuum pumps in the engine compartment.

I'm sure you payed the dealer for something or other. Make them tell you which pump needs to be replaced. Ask them for a part number. Why should they be able to hold information fir ransom? Who do they think they are, MERCEDES BENZ??

Be careful - if it's the washer system there will be two pumps if you have headlight washers. - make sure you ask. I'm not sure these are your pumps though. Neither of these are vacuum pumps.
