This sounds more like you have an exhaust leak and it doesn't mean the check engine light has is related to your louder exhaust note. I don't understand how checking the 02 sensor be related to it either unless he meant if it came loose or lost it all together which is rare but not impossible. What I can suggest is have someone with a VAG 1552 scan tool or equivalent like the Ross Tech (PC app) scan your system. If there are faults, a specific DTC will be in stored in memory. Depending on the issue which determines the difficulty and financial investment involved fixing your problem.

Often "humming" noises like what you are experiencing are caused by a failing bearing somewhere. Some usual suspects are wheel bearings, alternator bearings, and sometimes even your waterpump, but usually it starts leaking too. To start narrowing down what it is, have someone ride with you to see if the noise is coming from left side or right side, or engine area, then see if it happens when the car is not moving, or just when the drive wheels are pulling the car? This way , hopefully you can pin point the culprit!
