      Your .rar file only contains a .wbpj file which is useless without the same named _files folder. In Workbench, use File Archive to create a .wbpz file which can be attached to your reply.
      To simplify the model, I suggest you use a Revolute Joint between the cylindrical surface of the brown pin and the two cylindrical surfaces of the holes in the green part. Then you can have two Frictional Contacts. On the first contact, put the Contact side on the radiused edge of the green part and on the Target side, put the ID of the gray part. On the second contact, put the Contact side on the radiused edge of the gray part and on the Target side, put the OD of the green part.
      Insert a Contact Tool under the Connections folder. Evaluate the Initial Contact Status. Make sure at least one of the two contacts are closed. If they are both near open, use Adjust to Touch on the one with the smaller gap.
      Under Analysis settings, turn on Auto Time Stepping. Set the Initial Substeps to 100.
