The .rar file is a compressed data file like a .zip.
You can unpack the .rar using WinRAR (rarlab.com) or WinZip (winzip.com).

<Press your right mouse-button.
<Click on "Repair archive", or press Alt+R.
<Click on Browse button and select a folder where you want to keep the repaired archive.
<There will be two options ("Treat the corrupt archive as RAR" and "Treat the corrupt archive as ZIP").
<Select any one of your choice (or see which one will work) and click on OK button.
<Go to the folder where you have kept the repaired archive and open it (Repaired archive will be named as rebuilt.*.rar or rebuilt.*.zip, where * is the name of original archive).
