They really should not have any cars on the lot waiting, including yours. When they(dealer) diagnose the problem as per TSB 11-12-13, they give you back your car while they wait for the parts to come in (the trans does not need to be removed to diagnose this issue)... it took about 3 weeks for my clutch parts to arrive, but, I was still driving my car during that time frame. Its not going to hurt anything, I mean, you've been driving your car this long with contaminated clutches.... LOL. Time for a new dealer, Ford will not re-imburse them for a rental or loaner while the car sits waiting for parts when the car is perfectly fine to drive in the meantime. I know its not your fault or problem, but, I find it amusing how many dealers keep the customers car for a week or longer waiting for clutch parts when its just one day job, and the dealer should be giving the car back to the customer after the original diagnosis.
