There should be no noises coming from a battery in normal operation. What you were hearing was one or more of the cells "gassing" which is usually caused by overcharging or low electrolyte or an internal short. If you replace the battery, make sure the charging system is not pushing excessive voltage. Have this checked or you could be buying a battery a week.
