I've never heard it called the "change over valve", but I'm familiar with the shut off valve. It's located under the vehicle, near the front of the fuel tank, right next to the charcoal canister (black box the size of a shoe box). This is a pretty high price to replace that valve. The part price looks correct but the labor time should be about .6-.7 hours max, unless they are charging to retest it after. The problem is, if their diagnosis is incorrect, and you replace the part, you are stuck. I suggest finding a Volvo Independent shop and they could do this for a more reasonable price.
