sfv is simple file verification, and has nothing to do with rar per se.
Normally the way to use a split rar like this is to do this:

rar x pioneer_service.part01.rar

This should extract any and all files from any number of archive parts.
It is remotely possible that the files where split and need to be joined,
although if that was the case the names would usually be something
like "pioneer_service.rar.01". To join files on Linux simply do this:

cat file1 file2 file3 > final_file_name

But as I said, I do not think that is the case here. If rar does not work
it is possible that one or more of the files you downloaded got corrupted,
and may need to be re-downloaded. You can use md5sum to check the
files manually, or install cksfv and use it with the sfv file.
