Are you referring to the handle or the keyhole? Water usually doesn't travel sideways and never travels upwards in relation to the ground. Those rear latch mechanisms are just kinda shit metal, and rust to easily. Also, the bar that that handle is attached to that actually opens and pops the hatch is "timed" so to speak. There is a fine line of where the bar can be adjusted (via threading) that will make it open/stay closed. The best resolution would be a new latch handle. Try to get the whole ass'y including the license plate lights if you can.
