What part? Part number?

Certainly 3 months is unacceptable, but the squeaky wheel gets the grease. ...

Here in CA I'd bet that driving around with the CEL effectively disabled (ie on all the time, no way to tell when a new code is set) is a violation of some regulation. If you were in a loaner rest assured it wouldn't have been three months...

If your point is "I shouldn't have to complain" you are absolutely right. And waiting.
