I would say the latter. The shaft should move. I had this problem but not this car. You should be able to retreive the shaft by going under the hood and pushing it back through. If not you have to take everything in front of you off. Hope it helps.

Replacing the mid-ship carrier bearing is not that hard.
You will need to unbolt the U-joints, seperate the drive shafts.
Unbolt bearing retainer. Take this to a good auto parts shop that has a machine shop. Tell them you need a new one and they will do the rest.

If you feel this rattle while driving at low speed or turning at low speed it is likely a worn out steering shaft coupler, it is very common.
