Yup.  Get out an old blanket or pillow, and crawl upside-down into 
the passenger footwell.  There's a double trap door deal, which is 
supposed to be connected via spring to a vacuum actuator.  Check the 
mount for the arm that the spring attaches to, the spring, and the 
actuator(turn on the car, flip through different modes and 
temperature extremes, the flap should move.)

If all appears well, unplug the actuator and test with a hand vacuum 
pump...but the most common failure is the plastic arm or the spring. 
A common problem on all type 44 cars.
