The service advisor heard the noise within about 15 seconds. We hadn't even pulled out of the parking lot at the dealership! I've also received phone calls from the regional CSM thanks to some initial PM action on here with the Ford reps. So, while it's not yet fixed, I'm definitely satisfied with the attention it's now receiving.
Was back at the dealer the other day. They know it's making noises, but Ford has told them that whatever TSBs apply to it don't apply to when/where my car was built. So, right now, they're stuck.

Looks like I'm going have to escalate this through my Regional CSM...
