Quite possibly, there is a way to solve your problem in reasonable time. But you have not provided enough detail for anyone to propose a solution. You need provided the code that defines f,g and h.

And if you are literally doing

In:={X, Y, Z} = {f[u, v], g[u, v], h[u, v]}
Out={f[u, v], g[u, v], h[u, v]}

In:={X - f[u, v], Y - g[u, v], Z - h[u, v]}
Out={0, 0, 0}

It should be obvious why Mathematica cannot solve the problem
