Cruise Control Problems

I probably have the weak pump issue as well on my 230k Avant.
I also have an issue with the climate control, another CC... sometimes it
will not blow A/C from the center vents. It will switch to those when I go
to Econ, but even BI-LEV won't switch to the center vents completely. I
wonder if this could also be related to the weak vacuum pump situation.
