What could be the problem when the right front window comes down and closed 5cm at a time? The driver window is operating normally.

Car is Golf MK3 cabriolet 1994

I bet my 10 yrs-from-now pension on broken plastic retainers ("wheels") or the guides on the window regulator.
Older VWs were notorious for failed regulators because those darn plastic wheels the cables roll on.

I would say the best thing you can do is to take the door card off and see what your problem is, either needing to just replace the track plastic guides or the whole regulator.
I'm not sure how readily available spare parts are nowadays to do repairs on a regulator, but you could definitely find the regulator itself. You would need to mount the motor to the new regulator, of course.
I had an old C4 Audi A6 and those generation cars were notorious for window regulator failures across the platform.
