moving subassembly parts in top assembly

Hi,

 

Got a small question (thats why I'm here of course). I'm modeling an oven and trying to do so with the help of subassemblies. I found out though that I can't move a part from a sub-assembly in the top assembly.

 

The oven consists of an upper and lower part. The upperpart is moved with the help of hydraulic cilinders. I made a subassembly of a cilinder, but when I put them in the 'total' assembly the rod won't move. If I open the piston assembly i can move it up and down the cilinder, but I can't anymore when i'm in the topassembly

 

Is this normal, and if so is there something i can do to make it work, or am i 'screwed' and do I have to make one huge assembly with all the parts in just to be able to move it all up and down.

 

Looking forward to any advice,

 

Stijn Chapelle
