If your air pump is making noise, it's probably a failing/failed bearing in the clutch.

What exactly does this air pump do? Is it for emissions systems? I was browsing the russian catalog for some parts & came across it. I have 1/2 the bracket there(the part molded to the intake manifold)& always wondered what it was for.
Here is what I am refering to

here is a pic of what I am talking about with my engine
