Small metal part in the brake reservoir‽

I was cleaning my front brake reservoir and all of a sudden there was a small metal part flying around.

How do I fit it back in and what does it even do?

Now after changing the brake fluid, there’s a distinct click sound from the caliper area. What may be the cause? Last season I cleaned up the caliper and re greased the slider pin and there’s plenty left of both the pads and the rotor.

There’s one initial click, which would be the brake light switch, but then there’s another coming from the caliper area after pushing the lever in further.

The lever feels firm, I think the brake fluid change went relatively well (I didn’t break anything) for being my first time. I’m not 100% confident there’s no air in the system though, I’ll keep an eye on it and I guess I’ll find out with time.

Here’s a video where you may hear the click:
