The quickest way would be to get a spray bottle of water and spray it on the plate while the engine is running. If the engine revs change then it is leaking.

Hi if you can get your hands on a smoke machine then that will be the way to go but if you cant get hold of one then you can use a spray bottle of water and adjust the nozzle to squirt directly onto the components you are checking air leaks for. Basically spray on one part at a time to see if it makes a difference.
