Don't worry, mine's like that too - and before the days of, worried, I asked a fellow 155 owner that lived around the corner if I could have a look at his - it was the same. What also made me suspicious was that the carpet doesn't go around it at the bottom, it looks like it's been fitted after the tube and they couldn't seat the hole around it.

the rod is there as a support for the steering column in the event of the air bag going off.
