While pressing the hub out of the front.

While pressing the hub out of the front passenger side steering knuckle on my accent, a tiny coil fell out. What is this for and where should I put it back? It seems to have been from the side of the knuckle towards the strut. Do I have to replace the wheel bearing because this fell out?

You have to replace the bearing anyway. You never do one without the other.

Most likely the little spring from the seal on the bearing
