    Three out of four of the windows are stuck, luckely in the closed
    position. This seems to happen often with the Accent, still what is the
    cause and is there a not too difficult way to fix this myself? I
    wouldn't call myself clumsy, but I'm also no technician.

    More on the car: 1995 Accent 5-door with manual winders, Dutch version
    (hence not named Accent, but Excel).

    Any help would be appreciated.

    One problem that has occurred with the 1995 Accent is that the windows are
    improperly glued to the plastic grips that hold them. If they stick in
    the window run (weatherstrip), the regulator may pull the grips off the
    window, resulting in a moving crank but no window action. To repair,
    you'll need to reglue the window into the grips.

    Clear. This might be the case with one of the rear door windows, where
    the crank indeed moves freely. Your answer suggests that this can be
    fixed with relative ease. Still, of the remaining two windows that are
    stuck the cranks cannot be moved.

    I witnessed the breaking down of one of those two. On closing the
    window the passenger had to pull the crank through a resistance when
    the window was already almost closed. Then the window snapped quickly
    into the closed position and could not be opened again.

    Can there also be another cause?

    That doesn't sound good for the other two windows, then. I've never seen
    this occur before. It's possible you may have jammed something in the
    regulator or that the regulator is broken. Without pulling the door trim
    panel and investigating, this is really just speculation.
