Motion of assy causes part interference

Hi people,

 

I am trying to create a motion study which involves the engagement and disengagement of a locking pin, which in a greater assembly enables/disables the movement of a yoke.

 

During the motion, which you can see in the attached video and the assy as well (check motion study named pin motion2), part number 36148 kind of slides INTO 36048. In other instances the distance mate between the two gets broken and the assembly malfunctions. This has been carrying on into the main assembly which I have been trying to create an animation for as well.

 

Any ideas why this might be happening?

 

Also, the pin retracts after it has been pushed. This is not something that I included in the motion. I don't understand why this is happening.
