Sorry for your loss, Mike.
Is it an eBrake or a parking brake??
Both the Audi owners manual and Bentley refer to it as a parking brake.
I disagree, believing that it, the PB, should never be used as the
sole unattended parking restraint. Use the tranny!
Further, in slushy, freezing weather I have witnessed frozen brake
cables not allowing PB release, with resultant smoking of the rear
brakes. Maybe a slightly different scenario was the cause of your
problem. Moisture in cables preventing the PB from being fully
engaged, and your not noticing a lower than normal lever engagement
