    Generally, rar files have a password, which is somewhere related to its source.
    If you mention the source, we might just be able to help you out.
    If you downloaded it from some site,
    generally, the password should be its exact name like...

    www.xyz.com

    It is nearly impossible to crack password for a rar file, you can only try to remember it. I had once forgotten the password to a personal rar file that I myself had locked; the password was strong, and I remembered all but few letters. The stuff was really important to me and I tried everything in the world but could not break the password despite of the fact that I knew most of it. Though I recalled the password at last.

    However, if the password is weak, you can attempt a brtue-force attack using the standard tools. Any tool that claims to offer a 100% success is a scam, since the whole point of encryption (AES for ex.) is that with a good password, even the best supercomputers of our time won't do the job.

    rar password crackers are very slow. so even if you get it you might not be successful after days. as yrana2002 said, most rar files have password name as site from which you download.
    if you download a torrents. check if it has any comment of it,on that site.
    or if file hosting server, check the forum/site from where you got the link.
    you never know what you can do until you try

    Open the rar archive in WINRAR and see whether it contains any comment. Sometimes this comment would be the PW.
