    I just replaced the brake pads on my 2013 C, but the brake pedal feels spongy and I dont feel a response, it did however activate the abs and the emergency brake light, but after a while the pedal feels spongy again, is there a way to fix this?

    You're description's confusing me. It felt ok for a while? Can you clarify "I dont feel a response",ie: they're barely working, or?

    How many miles do you have on the car? Did you bleed the brakes after changing the pads? If you have a lot of mileage on the car, you could change the fluid, that would help with too much sponge, but I would check that the brakes have been bled first.
