You can see just to the right of dead center of this pic there is a round aluminum plate with a nipple and the end of the vaccuum line that didn't seperate from the nipple.
I believe the other connection goes over the top of the pump.
Just take the hoses and start swinging them in a circle to see how far they'll reach and you'll find the other connection in less than a minute.

The shorter one connects to the cylinder head of the compressor. It almost looks like the fitting is in the hose. If so it must have corroded & fell off.

the fat hose to the left is a breather hose, has nothing to do with strut operations. the compressor can still work without it, but it purpose is air for cooling . it goes into the trunk cavity so it never sucks in water (hopefully) . the little hose to the right (just below the wire harness) is the air line for the struts and valve in the trunk
