you can go to a manufacturers website and generally they have online catelogues. just look up the 2 models and see if they have the same part number. for something like belts, try Gates, Bosch and/or Dayco.

most of the acessories are the same from ef to au but the belts are different in length.(i think its because of the alternator mounting difference)???
on the gates belt listing
the ef belt is 6pk2375
the au belt is 6PK2415R(it doesnt say if std and vct are the same or not?)
