2004 VW Touareg: it started making noise under the hood..smoke…

Customer Question
Hello and thank you in...
Hello and thank you in advance. I have a 2004 VW Touareg and it started making noise under the hood i located the sound and my husband unplugged what we found out through the model number was my vaccuum pump. We replaced it and the noise came back two weeks later and it was with smoke this time. The replacement part was still good, so what can it be.
