4kq differential locks

My differential locks don't anymore.  As my Haynes 4k manual doesn't
cover quattro models, I am at a loss as to where to begin as I don't
know where the system is nor much about how it works.  When I turn the
locks *off*, I hear the vacuum being released, though slightly less
loudly (less vacuum) than when they were working.  Where should I begin
to diagnose the problem?  How do I determine whether it is insufficient
vacuum or frozen differential locking pins?  (Probably the former since
it is suspicious that both center and rear stopped simultaneously.)
