Front hub excluder seal

I recently found a loose ring on the inside area of the hub on the driver side. I looked through my mechanics manual and found something that may be that part. It is called an excluder seal.

Does anyone know the function of this excluder seal? Should I be concerned about it floating around in there?

Dirt seal. Often they cause a high pitched squeal in cold weather. Not sure what it's loose though,

I use to get that squeal after being in the dirt for a long time. I have not noticed it for a while, maybe because it is not functioning properly. I guess I will not run right out and get a new part to replace it, but will still keep it in mind if I have some spare time and decide take that hub apart. It must be there for a good reason. I can't imagine they would have it there if it served no purpose.

I am currently having the same issue, I was getting a high pitch squeal. I took everything apart and they are both torn. I'm also having a really hard time finding them.
