Is there a way to "find and replace" part of a card name using the Automation or Butler in Trello?

Is there a way for me to find a string inside of a card name, and replace it with a different value?


I have:  (8) Level 1 - Area 3-B - Plumbing - Coordination - [0]

I need: (8) Level 1 - Area 3B - Plumbing - Coordination - [0]

We are using PowerBI to organize and visualize our Trello data, and the naming is important for that purpose.  The "-" in the bold portion of the card name above creates a split in the data that I don't want, so I need to remove it.   Unfortunately, there are 100's of cards that have this wrong naming. 

Hoping that I can do this within Butler Automation.  I've figured out how to find this portion of data, but am having a hard time understanding how to rename just that portion with updated data.

Maybe look into the Bulk Actions Power Up? 

I love the bulk actions tool, and use it often.  The problem I have using that tool is that the text before what I need to change varies from card to card.  It could be (2) Level 2, etc... Bulk Actions will rename, but it works like this:


substitute first (?) characters with: 
substitute last (?) characters with:
