    Had a quick look on Lrcat are these the part numbers that you need?
    ASR2528 - (SEAL-FRONT DOOR GLASS RUN CHANNEL OUTER RH) [ - (V)YA563827 ]
    ASR2529 - (SEAL-FRONT DOOR GLASS RUN CHANNEL OUTER LH) [ - (V)YA563827 ]
    CGE000160 - (SEAL-FRONT DOOR GLASS RUN CHANNEL OUTER RH) [ (V)YA563828 - ]
    CGE000170 - (SEAL-FRONT DOOR GLASS RUN CHANNEL OUTER LH) [ (V)YA563828 - ]

    Try Rimmer Bros for stock/price etc
    Hope this helps

    Your sure your cables are OK and not rusted up inside...also reseating the window in the clamps can help..

    had this on my passenger side , I put the window down, used a tooth brush with some washing up liquid and gave the rubber a good clean, worked a treat as I noticed green mildew on the inside of the rubbers

    finished off with white spirit and a rag to get everything off

    hopefully it may be something as simple as this and just wished to share my own experience with the window operating slowly

    Yup those rubbers are expensive for an old hippo...my motor gets hot too...I just presumed it was normal...I also cleaned out the insides of the rubbers...
    I found reseating the window in the clamps helped loads..

    I've sat under a patio umbrella in the past changing my track rod ends.
