Hi, 

In my car I noticed rust in back door hinges. Back door ( dickey door ) recently replaced. What can I do to fix this ?

For proper fixing, remove the door.. scrape off the rust on the hinges and panel.. apply rust converter, sync spray.. antirust primer, spray paint again.. (you will have to find a proper body shop and make sure they follow the procedure.. ) unless rust will surface again after sometime.. this looks like half a** job of a body shop..

Yes...like @Ruslan said you should remove it and respray the area...but make sure you remove all traces of rust if not all that you will be doing ins spray pain on top of the rust and it will keep rusting underneath the paint surface again.

This very well could have started because the paint might have gotten scratched during installation (or there was rust previously but they did not do a proper job cleaning it off and painting it.
