Seat belt retractor on passenger side of my 2001 Taurus wagon is stuck in midway position between fully extended and fully closed.

Retractor clicks but the result is only a 1/2 inch movement of the belt and no more.

How can I fix the problem?

Did you try giving it a sharp tug?

I just fixed this the other day on both sides of my Gen IV.

Pull up the back of the front door's plastic door sill trim, so it uncovers the pillar trim at the bottom, then pull the pillar trim inward from the bottom, and you will see the belt and the retractor. Most likely, the belt is folded over, or tangled. Straighten it out, pull any creases over the rollers, and pull it in and out a few times, and you'll probably be good to go.

Good luck,

Edward
