Has anyone successfully gotten the price protection after the fact?

I ordered my car on 8/7/21 (meaning I have a signed Retail Buyer Order signed by me and the dealership with an out-the-door price on it). I took delivery on 5/14/22. At that time, the Sales Manager said that I was price protected, but they didn't know how much Ford would give back because of fraud, but that his folks were well versed and would submit the paperwork on Monday (this was a Saturday). He said that people have been getting it as fast as 15 days but that Ford had 45 days and I should be prepared to wait that long. I didn't trust the guy and figured most of this was exaggeration if not lies.

Well, here we are 63 days later and still no check. I tried to go in this week, but the Office Manager who deals with it is on vacation, so I have to wait until next week. Just wondering if I should be reasonable and give them longer or if it is fair to start demanding accountability. We're talking $2000, so I'm not just walking away.
I received the check in the mail yesterday! So assuming they submitted the claim the Monday after I took delivery (which they said they would do but I was never able to confirm), it was 5/16 -> 7/28 or 73 days.

I was lucky the finance guy screwed up my contract (on a Saturday) and a few days later the contract had to be reworked with 36 total payments instead of the wrong/original 35.

They had submitted price protection on the Monday and confirmed I was eligible so my updated contract had the $3K off (GTPE).
