Do you have the rear hubs off of the unit yet? I'm assuming that you are removing the transmission from the unit as a assembly. I will start from the beginning of the disassembly you may have completed most of these steps.

Remove the rear wheels from the unit then remove the upper carriage bolt from the outer axle hub and tip the hub assembly outward.
At this point you will have enough room to work the CV shaft out of the wheel hubs.

At this point you will give the axle shaft a sharp pull, this will dislodge the compression ring on the axle shaft in the transmission.If you find them very tight you may use two small bare or screw drivers on ether side of the hub next to the transmission and pry the hub out. This ring is basically a circular clip which wraps around the axle shaft. When inserted into the transmission is has a locking grove that it sits in. What you are doing when you pull outward on the axle shaft is compressing this ring. This compression of the ring unseats the axle and allows you to remove the shaft.

Have a look at this it may help.

Bleeding the brakes

I would first make sure you have a clean master cylinder, and the two little holes are clear in the bottom of the master. Try a gravity bleed first open all the bleeders on all the calipers, maker sure all the little bleed screws are clear of mud if they have no little rubber caps on them. This will take a bit of time, just let the unit site for a few minute and see if you see brake fluid dripping from the bleeders. Once you see clean brake fluid at the bleeder close it off until you have all three or four calipers with clear brake fluid.

At this point go to the furthers bleeder from the master cylinder, pump the brake handle five or six times. open the bleeder and repeat until you see no air. do this for the rest of the calipers.

You will also have to bleed the emergency brake system for the rear calipers, you should see two bleeders on each rear caliper.

Master Cylinder

Remove the brake line from the master cylinder and place your finger over the end of the master. see if you can build pressure on your finger. If you build pressure on your finger you should try and bench bleed the master cylinder.

Where you removed the brake line from the master cylinder, try and find a plastic fitting that will fit in that hole. Make sure your fitting has a barb on the other end as you will be installing a short piece of plastic clear line onto this fitting. Place the other end of the plastic line back into the open top of the master cylinder.

Pump the brake lever and take note if your see and fluid moving in the line. If your see no fluid moving or no pressure on your finger, the piston in the master will have air in it or the seals in the master cylinder have failed. Some brake system are hard to bleed the air out.

Try and use only a plastic fitting as this is a banjo fitting, a pipe thread in plastic will not damage the master cylinder.

CAUTION NOTE BRAKE FLUID WILL REMOVE PAINT FROM YOU MACHINE TAKE CARE NOT TO LET IT SIT ON ANY PART IF IT SPLASHES ON IT.
