If I may interject. Don't replace the compressor on the suspicion it may be faulty. Have a qualified technician take a listen to it first. It's neither cheap, nor is it considered to be a consumable, unlike the air springs which are ultimately going to fail at some point it every vehicle's life time. Much like conventional shocks need replacing. In the video you provided the sound seems to me to resemble any small, 12v air compressor (much like the ones most of us keep in the trunk of our vehicles for routine tire pressure correction). Unless it's running rough I wouldn't throw money at it. Like I said, get a professional to take a listen first. But definitely, don't leave it unattended.
