    I'm no expert, but it looks like the frame work that the hinge attaches to rusted out. That may be a place where water accumulates. You might be able to pull the tailgate and molding off and have a plate welded in or have the rust repaired, then re-attach the hinge. Considering what it looks like, I don't see any other fix. Good luck!
