W124 Central Locking Gas Flap Actuator Modification

The original gas flap actuator in my 1990 300CE has two vacuum lines attached to it. I'm told there needs to be a modification to the vacuum lines as the new actuators have only one vacuum connection. Has anyone encountered this or does anyone know what needs to be modified? Thanks.

All you need are the modified parts & a rubber vacuum "Y" fitting.
