Rust in the door handle???

Does anyone know the best way to get rid of the rust that accumulates at the bottom of a 94 D90 door handle?

In the pocket? Sandblast it out, treat it with POR 15, and repaint. Mask the rest of the door and you might not have to repaint the whole door.

I have been wondering this too! It seems like a bad design on the D90. They have made a flat pocket that collects water - and they made a little 'lip' that keeps the water trapped.

I do not know why they did not make that recessed area slightly sloped outward, and leave an opening for the water to overflow out to the door panel.
