I spoke to a Ford rep today and she was unclear if these missing parts would be installed eventually. She said if the dealer told me that the parts will be installed then they will definitely do it when parts are available. She also had no idea that Ford gave credits for these parts that aren’t installed. Not sure what to make of this deal.

I doubt it, these supply issues are not disappearing any time soon unless these car companies build their own chip fabs. By the time the new models are out they will have their own supply issues and they will not be making the 2022 parts anymore.
Just a thought, I hope that is not the case but it seems like that's the direction they're headed.

My 22 was built Sept 21 it sat in the factory waiting on a chip all this time, just took delivery on Friday.
I have all those features but still signed the two papers.
Which I assume is just standard business practice at this point if you have them or not.
Production of 2022 models did not begin until the second week of November 2021.

So he actually has a 21 and not a 22 then.

Anyone know when they will install the rear climate controls and rear heated seat controls? Also does anyone else know why the cup holders don’t light up?

Not sure on the control installation. Lights removed starting the 2022 year.

Hi all, I dont think there is anything to worry about…
I bought my 2022 ST - May 7
While mine does not have the rear controls installed, I was given an IOU to have installed when they become available. & Yes, the front seats have the massagers! Just make sure your looking at 401A
Thanks for that information! Just took delivery of mine July 8th. First I heard of this. Any futher info?
