Hello Les

The unit attached to the back of your alternator is the vacuum pump for the brake servo.It is much better to replace the unit complete as their is a high pressure oil pipe feeding the vacuum pump.To attain a good seal of the two units can sometimes be a challenge.

Here is one to consider better to have the exact part number for cross reference.

I hope this helps you

Thank you Peter
