Need help with Collision Mates

Hi there,

New to the forums, and new to SolidWorks.

I'm trying to do some collision mates, so to say, but I'm stuck, so any help would be nice. I'm attaching the demo assembly, so it would be easier for you to see what I want to achieve. The wheel can be rotated, and the stick can be rotated, so I want to make a mate where the red stick and the green part colide, so they don't overlap each other, i.e. to act the same way they act when using the "Collision Detection", in both directions. Also, if the red stick touches the green part and continues pushing, the green part should start moving the wheel, and vise versa, if the green part touches the red stick and continues moving, the red stick should continue moving alongside. I'm also including the print screen so you can visually see what I mean.

Any suggestions are welcome.

Thanks in advance.
