    Use the generate attribute operator.
    In this operator you will have quite some options to play with dates, including one to select only part of the date (date_get), just 'overwrite' your current field with the newly generated.

    Alternatively you could use the split operator and split on space. However, this would mean you need to convert your date to a nominal first, and afterwards convert to date again so it's a few extra steps compared to the generate operator
