My tension cable or something like that broke on my b5 a few weeks ago, window wasn't working at all, but I could hear the motor grinding in there. Took it to my audi-only mechanic and he said it was a common problem, happens to all 4 windows eventually (usually), it is caused by constant tension on this wire cable, eventually the plastic piece on which the wire wraps snaps in two. Cost me around $350 with install to fix it.

Interestingly enough he said it happens usually to the windows used the LEAST, because the tension is never released (i.e. by rolling the window down), with the front driver window generally being the last to go.

Not saying this is your problem but it could be!

slow motor sounds like a high resistance problem in your wiring.

bad connection, worn wire, etc..
